Community Corrections provides intensive supervision and surveillance for adults and juveniles who would otherwise be incarcerated in State facilities. Funding is from the Kansas Department of Corrections and Juvenile Services. Intensive supervision is the cornerstone of Community Corrections. For our clients, this includes frequent face to face meetings with Intensive Supervision Officers (ISO’s). It also includes random drug testing, surveillance, community service, and regular contacts with other community agencies that provide services such as counseling and drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
