ORGANIZATIONAL INFORMATION

Arrowhead Regional Corrections provides correctional services to five counties of Northeastern Minnesota’s "Arrowhead" region. ARC was formed under the auspices of the Minnesota Community Corrections Act and a joint powers agreement between the participating counties of Carlton, Cook, Koochiching, Lake and St. Louis.

Arrowhead Regional Corrections is administered by an Executive Board  under a joint powers agreement between the counties of Carlton, Cook, Lake, Koochiching and St. Louis. The ARC Executive Board is made up of eight County Commissioners from the five participating counties. St. Louis County appoints three members, with the remaining counties selecting one member each. Carlton, Cook, Koochiching, and Lake counties have an additional member that rotates between counties, every year.

CRIME RATES

  • In the ARC counties during 2002, 23% of arrests were of juveniles, while 77% of arrests were of adults. This is identical to rates for juveniles and adults statewide.
