Probation and Parole


To protect the citizens of the Commonwealth and to provide a safe, secure and humane environment for staff and offenders in carrying out the mandates of the legislative and judicial processes; and, to provide opportunities for offenders to acquire skills which facilitate non-criminal behavior.

 Halfway Houses

The Contract Management Branch is responsible for overseeing community service centers that house state probationers, inmates and parolees.  This branch is also responsible for the monitoring of the private prisons having contracts with the Department of Corrections. The current private prisons are Marion Adjustment Center and Otter Creek Correctional Center.
Inmates who are classified as community custody and are near their parole eligibility dates are placed in these centers/halfway houses.
The Average Daily Population (ADP) of inmates participating in the halfway house program is approximately 617.  The ADP of parolees/probationers is approximately 640.  This integration program allows inmates to become reacquainted with their families and the community and gives them a head start in seeking employment. This includes those offenders in need of substance abuse care and are located at one of the Recovery Kentucky Centers.  In addition, many inmates are enrolled in vocational schools and/or college programs.
If you're interested in opening a halfway house, please review our standards and requirements.
The Contract Management Branch may be reached at 502-564-7023.
