Mission Statement

Your Indiana Department of Correction is a community dedicated to improving and protecting lives in all communities.

The mission of the Indiana Department of Correction is to maintain public safety and provide offenders with self improvement programs, job skills and family values in an efficient and cost effective manner for a successful return to the community as law-abiding citizens.

Description

The Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) strives to maintain public safety and ensure that released offenders are prepared to lead productive lives as law-abiding citizens in the communities in which they live. To that end, we have adopted the national reentry model, Transition from Prison to Community Initiative. Solutions-based reentry programming begins on day one of incarceration. An individualized treatment and programmatic plan is developed for both adult and juvenile offenders. Case management is utilized to monitor and revise the plan as the offender progresses through the various stages of the reentry process. Successful reentry planning involves multi-organizational partnerships that engage criminal justice and human service agencies, neighborhood organizations, faith-based groups, crime victims, and the general public in communities that are home to large numbers of returning offenders in collaborative problem-solving.
