The Corrections Connection News Network is designed to be the ultimate online resource for corrections practitioners. It achieves this end first and foremost by being the only weekly news source devoted to corrections. In addition, the site offers things like the free posting of RFPs and events, as well as communication tools that allow corrections professionals to discuss common problems and best practices (online bulletin boards, email discussion groups, etc.).
The site was launched in February 1996, and the corrections community has been overwhelmingly responsive. CCNN receives 14 million hits and over 500,000 unique accesses per month.
