The first remedial framework in South Carolina was built up in 1866 when the South Carolina Assembly passed a demonstration that made the primary state-level jail for criminals that were housed in district offices. In 1960, the Legislative head of South Carolina chose to end the maltreatment of the remedial framework and consequently made another state organization. The office was named the South Carolina Department of Corrections. Today, the Department of Corrections is yet a state organization, announcing straightforwardly to the Representative. The Department of Corrections right now has nearly 5,700 workers, a little more than 20,000 prisoners and works 21 organizations.
The strategic the South Carolina Department of Corrections is: Security - we will ensure the general population, our representatives, and our prisoners. Administration - we will give restoration and personal development open doors for prisoners. Stewardship- - we will advance professional greatness, financial obligation, and independence.
The representatives of the South Carolina Department of Corrections will be viewed as a dynamic power that cooperates to guarantee the security of one another, to improve the lives and address authentic issues of the prisoners and set them up for reemergence into society.
