Batavia, OH – October 15, 2013. The Clermont County Community Alternative Sentencing Center (CASC) was implemented in August and officially celebrated their opening today. The CASC program is the county’s initiative to address the complications associated with repeat offenders who commit non-violent crimes due to substance abuse.
The program is operated by Talbert House out of an unused portion of the Clermont County Jail. This portion of the jail was originally constructed with classrooms and offices, a perfect match for providing private counseling, treatment services and GED classes.
Clermont County strives to be a model for change in reducing recidivism rates. The county has strategically aligned assets with inner departmental agencies, regional leaders and local experts to develop the CASC solution with the goal of thwarting recidivism and lowering criminal justice costs while improving lives and building healthier communities.
