KCI has been actively involved in residential community corrections programs since 1982 and currently operates facilities in Florida, Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee. Programs are administered in accordance with contracts awarded by the U.S. Dept. of Justice, Bureau of Prisons. In addition to institutional transfers, KCI accepts offenders who have been referred by the U.S. District Courts as conditions of probation and supervision, as well as those sentenced directly by the court to serve their entire sentence in a community setting. Through the utilization of community corrections, offenders are able to maintain a productive lifestyle while contributing to the cost of their incarceration.
Jails and Prisons are costly resources and should be reserved for violent offenders who need to be separated from society. While participating in a KCI community corrections program, offenders are allowed to maintain full-time employment and are required to reimburse the government at a rate of 25% of their gross income. In some cases, these community corrections residents pay for the entire cost of their participation in the program. Employment placement assistance is available, as well as counseling in areas such as substance abuse, life skills, and financial responsibility. KCI has proven through years of service to the criminal justice system that these goals can be accomplished while maintaining the highest standards of accountability and security to ensure public safety.
There are three types of offenders who are eligible for residency in KCI community corrections centers ( CCC’s).
¨ Probation and supervision cases are offenders required to reside in a CCC for a period of time specified by the court after recommendation by U.S. Probation Office and as a condition of their probation or supervision.
¨ Pre-Trial Release Cases are required to reside in a CCC as a condition of release while awaiting trial or sentencing.
¨ Institutional Transfers are those offenders who have served a portion of their sentence in a Federal institution and are transferred to a CCC for the purpose of making a transition back into the community.
All of the offenders are eligible for work-release and many will qualify for overnight passes with their families.
