Commissioner Rollin Cook

Welcome to the Connecticut Department of Correction website. Our Department has roots that date back to before 1773.  In 1968 all of the county jails and state prisons in Connecticut were unified under one state department of corrections. Through the next 30, years the Department needed to respond to an almost tripling of the inmate population. The Department's responsibility now extends to the reentry of offenders, supervising their return to the community. While our primary mission is to provide safety to the community, our staff and inmates, the Department also provides special assistance to Homeland Security, the State Police, the Department of Transportation and other state departments during emergencies and times of statewide need. The Connecticut Department of Correction is made up of over 5,836 men and women dedicated to providing public safety to the citizens of the State of Connecticut. It is an honor to represent this Department.
