New Public Forum: Community Corrections Collaborative Network

Take advantage of NIC’s new public forum focused on community corrections! The Community Corrections Collaborative Network (CCCN) is comprised of the leading associations for pretrial, probation, parole and drug courts. Each association has two representatives that attend two in person meetings per fiscal year.  They also collaborate on projects and present workshops at national conferences in between meetings, and try to stay connected to the field. 

This public forum is an opportunity for the field and the CCCN.  We want to hear from you, start conversations about emerging issues for community corrections, provide feedback on any issues or questions you might have, and to share information with each other.

To that end, the CCCN welcomes any questions, comments or anything related to community corrections that you might want to post!

The Coalition for Public Safety, as the group is called, includes organizations like the Center for American Progress and the American Civil Liberties Union along with Tea Party-aligned FreedomWorks and Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform. It’s backed, in part, by Koch Industries.
