Community Corrections offenders are reporting back in today


After being on a pass, offenders in the Knox County Community Corrections system are to report to the new facility today.

The brand new building on Old Decker Road is now open for use following an open house held for the public on Sunday.

The offenders have been on pass with ankle bracelets for over two weeks because of a water issue at the old community corrections facility on North 8th Street in Vincennes.

Community Corrections Director Scott Brown says many of the men and women are already familiar with the building

With the opening of the new community corrections and the recent completion of a Knox County Jail expansion, The Knox County Justice Campus on Old Decker Road is now fully operational.
