Commission Annual Reports

Note: The Commission of Correction does not hire or oversee corrections officers. Those individuals are employed either by the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) or the county in which the local correctional facility (jail or penitentiary) is located. Individuals seeking employment as correction officers should contact DOCCS or their county Sheriff’s Office for more information.
