The Department of Corrections is responsible for a comprehensive system of corrections for adults committed to its jurisdiction by the judicial system. Corrections is one part of the state’s total criminal justice system. Its activities are largely influenced by actions of the courts, the Indeterminate Sentence Review Board (ISRB), and sentencing laws. The agency’s mission is to improve public safety by positively changing lives. Corrections prepares incarcerated individuals for reentry by providing basic health care services, education, programming, work training and experience and other resources to assist in safe and successful transition to the community. To the extent allowed by law, Corrections applies the legal sanctions imposed by the state courts; supervises individuals sentenced to community supervision based on their level of risk; and manages re-entry programs and activities stressing personal responsibility and accountability of those sentenced to the state’s correctional system.
