New York State Commission of Correction


The Commission of Correction strives to provide a safe, stable and humane correctional system and ensure the delivery of essential services in the correctional setting. The Commission also oversees new jail facility development, and assists in the implementation of new correctional technologies.

The Commission meets monthly and as needed to discuss matters related to local and state correction facilities and police department lockups, including variances, maximum facility capacity, proposed changes in regulations, construction projects, and mortality investigations, among other matters.

Please Note: The Commission does not operate local and state correctional facilities and does not hire or oversee corrections officers.
