Lake County Residential Reentry Program
The Department first opened the Lake County Residential Reentry (LCRRP) in 1991 which was located in a Lake County jail annex. Technical parole and CRP violators were placed in Lake County TRV in lieu of revocation of their parole and return to incarceration.
The program expanded in 1992 to include a portion of the former Huron Valley Women's Facility near Ann Arbor and in 1995, a coed Technical Rule Violation Center was added at Camp Gilman near Clarkston, which formerly housed women offenders. In 1998, the Department expanded the original TRV Center in Lake County. In 2004, the Gilman TRV Center was closed and female offenders were placed at the Grand Rapids Corrections Center-TRV. In January 2008, the Grand Rapids Corrections Center-TRV was closed.
In early 2008, the Department changed its focus from TRV centers to Residential Reentry Programs. The Lake County Residential Reentry Program falls under the jurisdiction of the Office of Reentry Services within the Offender Success Administration. Residents housed at this facility include both male and female offenders who are required to participate in Reentry programming as a condition of their parole. The programming duration is 90-120 days dependent upon on the offender’s progress while housed at LCRRP.
The Comprehensive and structured programming that is offered at LCRRP will include but is not limited to facilitated groups which address Substance Abuse Education and Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Interactive Journaling, Serv Safe, AA/NA and Spiritual Based Programming. The intent of the programming is to enhance individual success, public safety and parole compliance. LCRRP Staff will assist offenders with their transition back to their communities. Evidence-based assessment tools will be used to develop individual transition plans and the participant will be connected with community-based partners to ensure a continuum of care.
