BISMARCK TRANSITION CENTER
The Bismarck Transition Center (BTC) is a comprehensive, community-based correctional program designed to help eligible, non-violent offenders transition back into the community. It provides the opportunity to develop necessary skills that aid male and female offenders in obtaining essentials such as employment and housing once they are released into society. The program provides residents with a full-range of treatment services that decrease the likelihood of re-offense upon release.
Community, Counseling, and Correctional Services, Inc. (CCCS) in partnership with the North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation opened BTC in August 2002. The facility was renovated by a group of private investors and is leased to CCCS on a long-term basis. BTC is the only correctional facility in North Dakota that is accredited by the American Correctional Association.
Bismarck Transition Center is a professional team of individuals who promote public safety, preserve the rights of victims, fulfill the mandates of the criminal justice system, and address the individual needs of adults.
