C.A.P.P.

Community Alternatives to Prison Program

About C.A.P.P.

In 1986, CAPP opened after the Community Corrections Act was approved by state legislators to relieve prison overcrowding by diverting nonviolent offenders from prison. CAPP has always incorporated the belief that offenders must receive training and treatment services to keep the cycle of crime from repeating. With that in mind, the state’s first Day Reporting Center (DRC) was developed and opened by CAPP in 1993; providing mental health counseling, addiction education and vocational/educational assistance to CAPP and state probation participants.
