The Division of Adult Institutions (DAI) supervises about 21,800 inmates sentenced by the courts to a term of incarceration or re-incarceration due to revocation of their community supervision placement.

DAI protects the public through secure and humane treatment of inmates committed to its custody and affords inmates the opportunity to gain skills and insight into their criminal behavior that are needed to support a crime-free life upon release to the community.

The Division oversees 36 adult correctional facilities and three bureaus.
