The Division of Community Corrections (DCC) is charged with supervising more than 68,000 offenders placed by the courts on probation, parole or extended supervision in the community. DCC's mission is to enhance public safety by managing and reducing an offender’s risk to commit a new crime. Agents and staff do that by assessing an offender's risk and needs for programming and by providing supervision in collaboration with community partners so offenders change their behavior and repair the harm they have done.

Probation and parole agents supervise offenders daily in the community, and also provide investigative services to the courts, the Division of Adult Institutions, and the Parole Commission to aid in sentencing and community reentry planning. Under limited circumstances, agents supervise juveniles released to aftercare programs and persons conditionally released from mental health facilities.
