Purpose Statement

The Division of Adult Institutions' Office of Program Services (OPS) provides centralized oversight of adult institution programs and educational services. Additionally, OPS takes a leadership role in department-wide reentry initiatives and ensures that the reentry philosophy is carried throughout all Division of Adult Institutions programming.

Services and Programs

To reduce the chances of returning to criminal behavior after release, inmates must complete identified reentry, treatment, education and other programming needs and/or build job skills during their incarceration. It is important that friends and family support and encourage inmates to use their time wisely in order to gain the skills they need to be successful when they return to the community. 

Please visit the Education Services and Primary Treatment Programs pages for more detailed information. DAI education and treatment programs vary by site, as detailed in the Opportunit​ies and Options Resource Guide​.​
