DCS Annual Report 2015 - Page 23

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.
