History & Goals

Arkansas Community Correction, Two Union Plaza, Little Rock, AR In 1993 the Arkansas Legislature passed the Community Punishment Act (548) establishing the Department of Community Punishment (DCP). The purpose of this act was to establish an agency to assume the responsibilities of management of all community punishment facilities and services, execute the orders of the criminal courts of the State of Arkansas and provide for the supervision, treatment, rehabilitation and restoration of adult offenders as useful law-abiding citizens within the community.

During the 83rd Session of the General Assembly, a bill was filed primarily to rename the Department of Community Punishment. The bill was signed by the Governor as Act 323 of 2001 changing the name of the agency to the Department of Community Correction (DCC) . This act also changed the Board of Correction and Community Punishment to the Board of Corrections (BOC).

In 2013, the Department of Community Correction became known as Arkansas Community Correction (ACC).
