Community Corrections

The Rice County Department of Community Corrections works closely to address the characteristics of offenders that lead to recidivism. Community Corrections works with the following:
  • Community Groups
  • Criminal Justice System Stakeholders
  • Schools
  • Social Services
  • Victim Service Agencies
  • Youth Service Agencies
As a Community Corrections Act county we serve juvenile and adult probationers as well as offenders who are released from Minnesota prisons. We take an evidence-based approach to supervision focusing our efforts on offenders with the highest risk and most critical needs.

  • Community Leaders
