Community Transition Program

The purpose of the Community Transition Program is to facilitate the successful reintegration of offenders returning to the community. All felons with a sentence of at least two years, who are residents of Indiana, do not have detainers or warrants, meet the time requirements of statute, and have at least 30 days to serve. Notices of eligibility are generated 45 to 60 days prior to the offender's Community Transition Program commencement date and sent from IDOC Central Office to the sentencing courts, prosecutors and community corrections directors, for participating counties. All approvals and denials issued by the courts are sent to IDOC Central Office. IDOC facilities deliver offenders as ordered by courts or statute. All actions at the county level are directed by the court or may be delegated directly to a community corrections program, probation, or a contract provider. Daviess County participants will begin the program in Work Release. Depending on the amount of time in CTP the participant may become eligible to transition to Home Detention the last two months.
