Our Mission

The Webb County Community Supervision and Corrections Department is committed to providing continued protection to the public through the use of Court ordered sanctions and services.

The Department’s basic philosophies for managing offenders within the local justice system are risk management and rehabilitation. Therefore an alternative to incarceration is a structured supervisory plan for offenders placed on community supervision.

Offenders are ultimately held responsible and accountable for their actions.

    * Promoting effective delivery of community-based correctional programs consistent with the objectives designed by law.
