In Memory of Corporal James Ferguson
DOC mourns the loss of Corporal James Ferguson. During Cpl. Ferguson's 15 year career with DOC he provided remarkable service to the people we serve as well as his colleagues and peers.

The positive impressions he made on the lives of others will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers remain with his family during this time.
College Recruitment Fair
DOC's Office of College and Career Readiness organized a successful Recruitment Fair for Fall 2018. Representatives from Ashland University, Georgetown University and Howard University spoke about opportunities they offer to help residents further their educational and career goals while they are in our care. Residents can earn college credits and other certifications by taking the upcoming courses which will better position them for re-entry into the community and workforce.

"This is a brilliant program which helps us focus on what it is that we want to do," Resident Davis said.

"It helps us while we are in a focused state of mind because we can't go out the same way we came in," Resident Davis added.

Policies & Procedures
Policy binders with the agency’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) were placed in the Officers' Dining Rooms (ODR) at the Central Detention Facility, Correctional Treatment Facility, Central Cell Block and the Training Academy.

Once existing and new policies are approved by the Director, the OPP will update the binders monthly. All binders must remain in their respective places.

There are no updates at this time.
