The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) keeps people in line. The agency was created in 2011 by the combination of the Department of Correctional Services and the Division of Parole in order to streamline departmental functions and eliminate duplication of effort. Under the supervision of a deputy commissioner, the DOCCS will offers a continuum of care to an offender throughout the entire correctional process. The 19-member Parole Board will continue as an independent entity, but will be supported by the agency as a whole. Non-parole activities include overseeing the confinement and rehabilitation of about 57,000 inmates at some 70 maximum, medium, and minimum security prisons.
