Community Corrections Program

Intermediate Sanction as a Condition

Assignment to a community corrections center must be ordered as an intermediate sanction condition of probation, parole, or pre-release.

At disposition, only a judge can order participation in an intermediate sanction level at a community corrections center.

As a method of re-integration, the Massachusetts Parole Board, county sheriff’s departments, and the Department of Correction use their respective classification standards to order participation in an intermediate sanction level at a community corrections center.
