About the Guadalupe CSCD

Mission Statement and Philosophy

The mission of the Guadalupe County Community Supervision and Corrections Department is to effectively serve the courts and the community by providing a multitude of services responsive to the needs of the offender and the community. Although our primary approach in meeting the needs of the offender is based on rehabilitation and reintegration, our responsibility to the court and community requires our utilization of deterrence, punishment, and restraint when deemed necessary.

The Guadalupe County Supervision and Corrections Department Philosophy is based on holding offenders accountable for their behavior, acknowledging that personal accountability is a prerequisite for change, regardless of the corrections approach required. This philosophy of accountability extends to all personnel of our Supervision and Corrections Department to promote and maintain ethical, just, and responsible supervision services.

Some of Our Programs
