Description

The murder in August 2003 of a high profile inmate in Department of Correction custody signaled the need for system wide reform throughout the agency. Following an independent investigatory review of the incident, the Governor convened a Commission on Correction Reform (GCCR), chaired by former Attorney General Scott Harshbarger, to conduct a comprehensive review of systems and practices in the Department of Correction. As part of this reform process, then DOC Commissioner Dennehy immediately prioritized the development and implementation of strategic plans for system change.
