Drawing of Dept of Corrections badgeMission Statement

​The mission of Coös County Department of Corrections is to provide for community safety, facility security and the welfare of staff and inmates. Service to the public and the Criminal Justice System will be of the highest quality.

Staff Members understand that inmates are subject to deprivations resulting merely from confinement and that their role is not to inflict punishment, but to make an inmate's period of confinement as productive as possible.

The effective and efficient operation of the facility is dependent on highly motivated, well trained staff members, who continually strive to improve both their individual job performances and their areas of responsibility.

To encourage professional growth, staff members are provided with the vision, leadership tools, and resources to fulfill this mission.
