Current Radio Program:

Now representing nearly 90,000 members, the Community Corrections Collaborative Network (CCCN) is facilitating a national dialogue about the increasing importance of community corrections in local criminal justice systems. Today’s program looks at how perceptions about community corrections have changed over the past decade, how the CCCN is taking an active role in raising awareness about community corrections issues, and how community corrections is changing lives and outcomes through its various roles, including through healthcare reform as it serves as one of many opportunities for determining eligibility for justice-involved individuals.

Our guests include Gregory Crawford, Correctional Program Specialist with the National Institute of Corrections; Phil Nunes, Chief Programs Officer at Alvis House; and Spurgeon Kennedy, Director of Strategic Development for the Pretrial Services Agency for the District of Columbia and Vice President of the National Association of Pretrial Services Agencies.

The Community Corrections Collaborative Network (CCCN) is sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections and comprises the leading associations representing probation, parole, pretrial, and treatment professionals around the country, including:

  1. American Probation and Parole Association (APPA)
  2. Association of Paroling Authorities International (APAI)

  4. International Community Corrections Association (ICCA)
  5. National Association of Pretrial Service Agencies (NAPSA)

Each association identifies two representatives to serve on the network along with representatives from community treatment professionals.

CCCN officially became a network in September 2012.  There has been a great deal of energy and enthusiasm from the network members and associations about the CCCN. General feeling by the network members is that this network has tremendous potential to influence and align the field, speak with one voice, and create a shared understanding of evidence-based practices.

CCCN’s mission is to serve as the forum to develop and work the emerging issues, activities, and goals of the community corrections field.

CCCN’s vision is to create a shared message and understanding of community corrections and prioritize research areas.
