Four out of six of our adult facilities and both of our juvenile centers have
passed rigorous American Correctional Association audits with outstanding scores and earned national accreditation.
Our Mission : The mission of the Department of Corrections is to reduce the likelihood that juvenile and adult offenders will re-offend, by providing practices, programs and services which are evidence-based and which hold the offenders accountable.
