Community Support

Community support programs are designed to reduce recidivism by providing assistance in safe and secure environments.

Individual, group and family counseling assistance along with community referrals aim to enhance discharged individuals’ quality of life by improving their problem solving, decision making, and coping skills.

Victims of the cracks in the criminal justice system, as well as West Town and Markham residents, all benefit from these efforts.

Community Van

The van is available for discharged individuals that need transportation to court, medical appointments, job interviews, etc. An officer picks up the individual at a previously provided address, drops him/her off at their appointment location, and upon completion, returns them to the initial address.

Community members schedule a ride at least one week in advance by calling 773-674-4686. Accommodations with only 24-hour notice are discretionary, and only made in case of an emergency. A staff member confirms availability on a first-come, first-serve basis; if a time and date are not available, sheriff’s personnel work tirelessly to attempt to accommodate each caller.
