- Community Corrections
Atchison County Community Corrections is responsible for adult and juvenile offenders placed on probation by the Court. They also assist with Children in Need of Care. ACCC's goal is to improve community safety by providing services and referrals to assist clients in making pro-social changes to their lives. We work with the clients to ensure they are able to meet their basic needs and address areas in their lives that are detrimental to pro-social living. Through coordination with area treatment centers, educational resources, and other service organizations, ACCC is able to provide any assistance needed to develop clients into contributing members of society.
While on supervised probation, clients must comply with a number of standards such as following all the laws of the United States. All clients must also submit urine samples for testing of illegal drugs and abide by a curfew set forth by the intensive supervising officer. While on probation the client must complete a number of community service hours which depends on the amount ordered by the court. The court also rules on the amount of the fines and restitution that the offender must pay back to the state before he/she is released from supervised probation.
