Description

We conducted a performance audit to determine if the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services (DPSCS)—Division of Correction (DOC) was properly calculating and accounting for inmate diminution credits. These credits are earned by inmates assigned to DOC institutions, under certain conditions, such as for good conduct and for satisfactory performance in work programs. Diminution credits permit inmates to be released, under a process called mandatory supervision, prior to serving the full term of their confinements. Inmates released under mandatory supervision are still under the authority of DPSCS until the full sentences have expired.
