Developing policies, procedures and protocols to meet the changing needs of community corrections;
Managing methods of delivering services to the courts, community and offenders;
Managing personnel, finances, information, facilities and equipment;
Ensuring that the day-to-day challenges are done responsibly, effectively and efficiently.
