Information Technology provides tools to help the Department of Public Safety employees.
For Adult Correction, these tools address problems and needs at the working level: recording pertinent data about offenders; tracking their movements; and charting their progress in programs and other rehabilitative efforts. The tools also provide logistical support to the department: ordering and stocking materials, supplies, and equipment; and supporting the financial and human resource functions. The tools also provide decision support to management:
- monitoring the flow of offenders;
- assisting in immediate and long-term space and staff planning; and
- helping to select the most appropriate parole candidates.
Finally, these tools establish links from the department to the broader criminal justice community, receiving and supplying critical timely information to our courts, law enforcement and crime victims.
