Offices of Community Corrections (OCC)


The Essex County Sheriff’s Department operates 3 Office of Community Corrections Centers (OCC) located in Lynn, Lawrence and Salisbury. Community Corrections Centers are collaboration between the Sheriff’s Department, Parole and Probation Departments.

Each center provides services and programs on a day-reporting basis for inmates who have been released from one of the three correctional facilities but are required by the court to attend programs, have random drug testing or hold a part-time job. Other services include life skills, substance abuse treatment, AA, NA, educational opportunities, job development, and life skills training.
