Corrections Mission

The mission of the Corrections' Division is to serve and protect the community by providing a secure and humane environment for those entrusted to our custody. We will maximize programming that reduces Criminogenic behavior and recidivism, promotes pro-social thinking, and enhances successful re-integration back into society. This will be accomplished through fiscal responsibility, in the least restrictive setting, without compromising public safety.


As an integral part of the Criminal Justice System, our vision is to strengthen public safety by achieving excellence in correctional practices.
