Description

Delaware Department of Correction (DOC) is a “unified” adult correction system, which makes Delaware different from most states in that in addition to being responsible for the prison population, it is also responsible for the detention and jail populations. Generally, a prison houses offenders sentenced for a felony to a term of a year or longer. A jail population is usually the responsibility of a county or city government and includes offenders sentenced for either a felony or misdemeanor to a term of a year or less. Detained persons include those held in pre-trial status, those held for the state government for a violation of probation , and administrative holds for other jurisdictions, including many types of federal holds. The Delaware Department of Correction Incarceration Fact Book attempts to provide an accurate summary of DOC populations and offender movements through the “unified” adult correction system.
