Office of Community Corrections
The Kent County Office of Community Corrections department is responsible for collecting and analyzing data related to sentenced felony offenders, jail utilization and program performance. Specifically Kent County OCC gathers data related to the following items:
- Sentenced felony disposition and offender characteristics obtained from OMNI data submitted to the Kent County Office of Community Corrections from the 17th Circuit Court Probation Office
