Thomas Loughren, Commissioner

The Commission of Correction is a three member deliberative body, which meets monthly to discuss variances, maximum facility capacities, proposed changes in regulations, mortality investigations, and other matters that may arise. The meetings are broadcast via a webcast once a month. The schedule for each Commission meeting is posted here.

Note: The Commission of Correction does not hire or oversee Correctional Officers. They are employed either by the New York State Department of Correctional Services and Community Supervision (DOCCS) or the county in which the local correctional facility (jail) is located. If you are inquiring about positions for either state or county correctional departments, please contact DOCCS, or the county correctional department you are interested in obtaining employment information from, directly.

State prison addresses may be accessed from the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision' ' web site.
