In the Missouri Department of Corrections, we foster public safety, health and wellness. We support victims and give back to our communities and people in need. We facilitate treatment, education and job training to equip justice-involved Missourians with the skills they need to contribute to the state’s communities, inside and outside our walls.

Our offenders participate in programs designed to help them change their mindsets, develop a deep understanding of the impact of crime on victims, and make positive contributions to communities inside and outside facility walls. More than 95% of offenders committed to correctional facilities are ultimately released back to society. Preparing them to successfully transition to the community improves public safety and reduces future victimization.
