Act 511, Immediately in Effect as of December 29, 1988
A Michigan Act providing the funding of community-based corrections programs through local governmental subdivisions. This Act created local and state Community Corrections Boards and prescribed their powers and duties, and the promulgation of rules.
Antrim, Grand Traverse, and Leelanau Counties combined to form a local Community Corrections Board. The 13th Circuit Community Corrections Board represents the local communities with members from all 3 county governments as well as the public. The board oversees the grant and rules for the Department. Operations of the Department are supervised by the Community Corrections Manager who is responsible to the 86th District Court.
A Community Corrections Officer position was added. This brings the number of officers to our present level of 3.4.
Community Service Work as an alternative to jail incarceration became the responsibility of Community Corrections.
