Difference Between SCOC and DOCCS

Please note that the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) is the agency that is in charge of the state prison system. Most questions and records concerning state incarcerated individuals, state prisons, programs for state incarcerated individuals, good time calculations and other similar matters are handled by DOCCS, and not the Commission of Correction (SCOC), which is the regulatory oversight agency. As such, please be sure that e-mails are addressed to the proper agency.
