Last updated on October 21, 2014

The Massachusetts Department of Correction's mission is to promote public safety by incarcerating offenders while providing opportunities for participation in effective programming designed to reduce recidivism.



Description:
We are professionals committed to an open and respectful organization dedicated to public safety through the safe, secure, humane confinement and successful re-entry of our offender population.


History:
The Commissioners of Prisons were established pursuant to St 1870, c 370. As reconstituted under St 1879, c 294, they were also known as the Board of Commissioners of Prisons. They were succeeded in turn by the Board of Prison Commissioners (St 1901, c 364), the Massachusetts Bureau of Prisons (St 1916, c 241), and the Dept. of Correction (St 1919, c 350, s 82).

Department Of Correction 4 Overall Experience    Experience rating
Volunteering in the prisons has been inspiring and has deepened my spiritual llife enormously.
 The Alternatives to Violence Project workshops provide experiential community building and skills in communication, cooperation, and conflict resolution. In facilitating these workshops for the last 15 years, I have profoundly experienced the power of individuals to overcome years of isolation, distrust and fear to build a community based on respect and caring. I now direct a small non-profit dedicated to bringing volunteers into the prisons and to being a voice for prisoners outside the wall.
