TDOC FAMILY AND FRIENDS FORUM
OPERATION TURKEY DAY
OPERATION OF SAFE AND SECURE PRISON
In 2012, the Tennessee Department of Correction began using a True Population Forecast Simulation Model to project system needs over a 60 month period. The simulation model allows TDOC to mimic the flow of offenders from the county jails to state prison and to reentry. Building this model gives us the ability to assess the impact on the offender population of adjustments to state statute, policy, and parole board practices and more accurately project the long term effects on the Tennessee felon population. This change in the way that projections have been done ensures that decisions are based on supportable data and the supervision of offender population is swift, appropriate, and cost effective for the citizens of Tennessee.
Over the past year, each commissioner of state government's 22 departments conducted a top to bottom review to thoroughly analyze operational and organizational efficiency at the direction of Governor Bill Haslam. Click here for a look at the TDOC top to bottom review.
Commissioner Schofield feels that it is important to keep TDOC employees, as well as the public, updated on information regarding the Tennessee Department of Correction. It is with this in mind that we have a newsletter designed to do just that. Our next issue is now available.
