Historical Overview of NCDOC
Transition and Reentry Initiatives

NC DOC Transition and Reentry Model

The Office of Transition Services (OTS) was created in September of 2006 by Secretary Theodis Beck. This office was created in response to the overwhelming need to support offenders as they transition from prison to community, throughout the period of community supervision and after supervision ends. The Office of Transition Services is responsible for the coordination of all internal activities related to transition and reentry. OTS provides assistance to internal and external stakeholders in developing policies and procedures, shaping new programs and providing training for staff in effective transition and reentry.  This office serves all divisions of the department, often facilitating inter-divisional projects, evaluating and revising policies and procedures, and planning or implementing new departmental initiatives related to transition.
