How to sign up for CTP?

Offenders do not sign up for CTP. Each eligible offender is automatically identified as eligible no more than 60 and no less than 45 days prior to that offender's CTP Commencement Date. When offenders become eligible, the Central Office CTP Coordinators notify the sentencing court(s), the county prosecutor, and the supervision agency.

Notification information includes the offender's name, offense description, expected release date, CTP Commencement Date, security level, credit class assignment, conduct summary and any other information that will help the sentencing court to make an informed decision.

Administration:

Notices of eligibility are generated 45 to 60 days prior to the client's Community Transition Program commencement date and sent from IDOC Central Office to the sentencing courts, prosecutors, and community corrections directors, for participating counties. All approvals and denials issued by the courts are sent to IDOC Central Office. IDOC facilities deliver offenders as ordered by courts or statute. All actions at the county level are directed by the court or may be delegated directly to a community corrections program, probation, or a contract provider.
