The Department of Public Safety is responsible for the safe and humane incarceration of individuals ordered to our custody by the courts. Inmates self-report their housing upon intake but it is voluntary. It is not a definitive count as some may give false addresses or choose to give no address therefore we cannot provide you with stats related to housing before and after incarceration. Our staff offer assistance to help inmates find community programs and housing before they leave, if they so choose, but our legal jurisdiction over them ends once they have finished their sentence and leave state custody. You can see more on our reentry services in the links provided below.

You can find more about our educational materials and reentry services for offenders through the links provided:
