About Corrections: History

The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (DOCR) is responsible for the direction and general administrative supervision, guidance, and planning of adult and juvenile correctional facilities and programs within the State. The Director is appointed by the Governor.

The Board of Control was established in 1911 to manage the state's charitable, reformatory, and penal institutions. It was succeeded by the Board of Administration in 1919. In turn, the Director of Institutions replaced that Board in 1969. The office of the Director of Institutions was abolished in 1989. The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation was created in 1989 and consists of the Adult Services Division and the Juvenile Services Division.
