Management Information Systems provides tools to help
correction employees manage offenders. These tools address problems and
needs at the working level: recording pertinent data about offenders; tracking
their movements; and charting their progress in programs and other rehabilitative
efforts. The tools also provide logistical support to the department: ordering
and stocking materials, supplies, and equipment; and supporting the financial
and human resource functions. The tools also provide decision support to
monitoring the flow of offenders;
assisting in immediate and long-term space and staff planning;
helping to select the most appropriate parole candidates.
Finally, these tools establish links from the department
to the broader criminal justice community, receiving and supplying critical
timely information to our courts, law enforcement and crime victims.
