The mission of Jackson County Community Justice charges our department with the responsibility of helping to keep people safe. We carry out this charge by supervising justice involved individuals to ensure that they do not create new victims or re-victimize prior victims. We provide treatment to help justice involved individuals take responsibility for their actions, behavior and provide them with the tools to live a responsible, law abiding lifestyle. Taking responsibility for their crimes includes justice involved individuals making restitution to their victims in the form of monetary restitution and apologizing for the harm they have caused. Justice involved individuals are required to pay back the losses they have inflicted upon the community through community services.
Our mission also charges us to keep justice involved individuals safe and to prevent them from becoming victims of tyrannical punishment. We assist justice involved individuals in accepting accountability for their actions and making positive changes. Our goal is that former justice involved individuals become responsible citizens of our community. All of our supervision services, interventions, sanctions, and programs are designed to carry out the department's mission.
