The mission of the Department of Corrections (DOC) is to provide a safe, secure, orderly and humane environment for the confinement of pretrial detainees and sentenced inmates, while affording those in custody meaningful rehabilitative opportunities that will assist them to constructively re-integrate into the community.
Summary of Services
The DOC operates the Central Detention Facility (CDF) and houses inmates in the Correctional Treatment Facility (CTF) through a contract with the Corrections Corporation of America; both facilities are accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA). The department has contracts with four private and independently operated halfway houses: Efforts for Ex-Convicts; Extended House, Inc.; Fairview; and Hope Village; these are often used as alternatives to incarceration. Like other municipal jails, 75 to 85 percent of inmates in DOC’s custody have one or more outstanding legal matters that require detention, and median lengths of stay for released inmates are 31 days or less. Ninety percent of DOC’s inmates are male. DOC also houses female inmates and a small number of juveniles charged as adults at the CTF. Each facility offers inmates a number of programs and services that support successful Community re-entry. These include:
