About the Indiana Department of Correction

indianadeptcorrection_volThousands of individuals are released from our facilities every year and become our future neighbors. Our goal is to provide them as many skills and resources as possible for that successful transition into the community. We want them to thrive in our neighborhoods and we rely on our volunteers to meet that goal. Whether it’s facilitating a program, planting in our gardens, or just being a ear to listen – our volunteers make a HUGE impact!

As the largest agency in the State of Indiana, the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) employees more than 6,400 Hoosiers, supervises almost 10,000 parolees in communities across the state and is responsible for the safety and security of more than 28,000 adults and 450 juveniles inside our correctional facilities.

The IDOC currently operates 20 adult facilities, 5 juvenile facilities and 10 parole districts. Even though the reach is far and wide, each small part of the Department is committed to the main tenets of our mission: to increase public safety and reduce recidivism.
