This Division of Adult Institutions (DAI) supervises more than 20,000 persons in our care (PIOC) who have been sentenced by a court 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 individuals who have been committed to its custody and affords PIOC 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.
