DCS employs evidence-based practices to hold offenders accountable and reduce the
state’s recidivism rate. We utilize a holistic approach to offender supervision that involves
all facets of the community which includes, but is not limited to: victims and their
families, programs for offenders and their families, involvement in community activities
and partnerships with other criminal justice agencies. We also provide offenders the
opportunity to make positive changes while in the community by providing individual
support, programs and assistance.
