Indiana Department of Correction

IDOC > About IDOC > Commissioner's Welcome Commissioner's Welcome

On behalf of the almost 7,000 Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) employees, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.  Indeed, the IDOC is a statewide organization, comprised of 20 adult facilities, 5 juvenile facilities, 10 parole districts, 80 community corrections counties, a central administrative office, and countless community partnerships.  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.

If you are looking for recent news on the Department, statistical data, or facility information, I trust that the IDOC’s website contains the most current and comprehensive information.  In addition, the links to the offender locator, IDOC Most Wanted, and sex offender registry pages provide a gateway to information on the populations we serve.  More and more, the IDOC’s website grows as a key source on a variety of information regarding corrections in Indiana, and we will continually strive to improve and expand upon it as time progresses.

To achieve this goal, I have actively encouraged the sharing of thoughts and ideas since becoming Commissioner.  If you have innovative solutions and constructive suggestions for the Department, send them to  By working together, we can do more to fulfill the Indiana Department of Correction’s mission.
