Community Transition Program

The Community Transition Component (CTP) is an early release program from the Indiana Department of Correction. The purpose of the program is to transition those who have been incarcerated for a period of time gradually into society. Those who are placed on the CTP program are placed on a GPS monitoring device during the entire CTP period.

Offenders with a D or C Felony or a Level 5 or 6 Felony are automatically released to CTP unless DOC receives an order from the Court denying the defendant’s release. Offenders with a B or A  or a Level 4-1 felony are automatically denied CTP unless DOC receives an order from the Court approving the defendant’s release. Felons convicted of a Level 4-1 offense must receive a court order to be accepted into the CTP. Community Corrections will make a recommendation to the Court for CTP release based upon a number of factors which includes, but is not limited to the following: The seriousness of the crime- violent and sex offenses are not recommended for placement.

The behavior of the offender while incarcerated at IDOC

Whether or not the offender utilized the programming offered through IDOC while incarcerated.

Past behavior of the offender if on community supervision

The living situation of the offender if released.


CTP placements are usually 30-180 days. During this time, the CTP Case manager completes assessments and a case plan for transitional programming. Those who violate conditions of CTP are sent back to IDOC to execute the remainder of his/her sentence.
