Community Corrections Partnership

It is our common mission to protect community safety. Our ability to achieve this goal requires collaboration and partnership with all components of the adult criminal justice system, education, social services, substance abuse, mental health, and community-based services in San Diego County. Based on our common goal, we have formed the Community Corrections Partnership (CCP). While the desire to convene this partnership committee is long standing, the formation of the CCP was prompted by the passage of Senate Bill 678, the California Community Corrections Performance Incentive Act of 2009. This bill requires each county that receives funding under the act convene a local Community Corrections Partnership. The bill requires that the partnership be chaired by the Chief Probation Officer and include the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court, the County CAO, the District Attorney, the Public Defender, the Sheriff, a Police Chief, the County heads of Department of Social Service, Mental Health, Alcohol and Drug Services, Employment, Office of Education, a representative from a community-based organization, and an individual who represents the interests of victims. SB 678 provides Probation Departments funds used to reduce the number of adult probationers revoked from probation and sentenced to prison. Funds come from savings realized by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) through cost avoidance. Reduction in revocations to prison must be achieved through the use of evidence-based practices.



On behalf of Chief Probation Officer Tamika Nelson, the Community  Corrections Partnership (CCP) is requesting memos of interest from a representative of a community-based organization with experience in successfully providing rehabilitative services to persons who have been convicted of a criminal offense who would like to serve as a member on the CCP board for July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2025.
