Purpose of the act.

Reduce crowding in state prisons and local jails by placing non-violent offenders in safe, highly-structured community punishment programs which do not jeopardize public safety.

Support and expand successful local programs and policies which can demonstrate a positive impact on the reduction of prison and jail admissions.

Make offenders pay back victims through restitution and community service work.

Develop additional middle-range sentencing options for the court in every jurisdiction throughout Michigan.

Provide treatment and educational services to non-violent offenders aimed at reducing recidivism.

Encourage greater involvement of local goverment officials and citizens, through community advisory boards, in the development and operation of correctional programs.
