Correctional officers play a pivotal role in protecting public safety. They not only separate offenders from communities across the country as they serve out their sentences, but they also deter others from breaking the law and prepare offenders to live a law-abiding life when they re-enter society through a variety of reentry initiatives.
Through various funding opportunities, research, and more, the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) is working to provide critical information and resources to corrections personnel and to support corrections programming.
