Hennepin County's participation in the State Community Corrections Act (CCA) requires the development of a biennial comprehensive plan. The 2020-2021 Hennepin County Community Corrections Act Comprehensive Plan has been prepared by the Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation (DOCCR). The 2020–2021 DOCCR comprehensive plan provides:
- an overview of Hennepin County, including demographics and local economy
- DOCCR programming highlights
- the administration and organization of correctional services
- program descriptions
- strategic plan and outcomes, and
- proposed 2020 budget and staffing
Minnesota Statutes 401.02 requires that a corrections advisory board be established to provide “for the preparation of a comprehensive plan.” Hennepin County has designated the Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee (CJCC) to fulfill that statutorily required responsibility. The CCA Plan is reviewed and approved by the CJCC in late September, and reviewed by the Minnesota Department of Corrections (MN DOC) in November, which may result in minor changes. County Administration will review and submit the final plan in December, revise any changes from the DOCCR proposed to approved 2020 budget, sign the resulting grant agreement after MN DOC approval in January, and confer with the Board as needed.
The MN DOC updates its CCA allocation formula every other year. The total MN DOC approved calendar year 2020 (and 2021) CCA Subsidy for Hennepin County is $16,873,421, which is a decrease of $9,151 from the prior year award of $16,882,572.
The Comprehensive Plan will be on file with the Clerk of the County Board.
