DOC encourages positive interaction with the community as we strive to promote public safety, community protection, and public understanding.
The Department supervises several programs that provide offenders the chance to give back to their communities, secure employment and get treatment for dependency issues.
- Offender Crews – Work includes roadside litter cleanup, wildlife habitat restoration, forest-fire suppression, graffiti removal and landscaping.
- Work Release – Expanding the DOC work release program for public safety.
Thousands of offenders gain work experience and training as they produce high quality, competitively priced products, which translates into enormous benefits for taxpayers, the offenders who work and learn in Correctional Industries, and for its customers.
