The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision is responsible for providing services that offenders need in safe and secure facilities, preparing offenders for release, and ensuring they receive appropriate monitoring and support while under community supervision. The goal of the Department is to enhance public safety by ensuring the successful completion of an offender’s sentence in order to lower the risk of reoffending.
The FY 2017 Executive Budget recommends $3.182 billion for the Department, an increase of $236 million from FY 2016. This increase is mainly attributable to restoring capital appropriations to their prior level offset by the elimination of the 27th institutional payroll in FY 2016.
The Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 29,089 FTEs for the Department, an increase of 220 FTEs from FY 2016. This workforce level reflects the Department's efforts to meet key FY 2017 initiatives including the Governor's Executive Order 150 to appropriately house and serve younger offenders and reforms related Special Housing Unit, and to fill critical positions.
