Security and Institutional Management
Population Management is responsible for coordinating all physical movement of inmates throughout the state in a manner to ensure that public safety is secure. This office is also deeply involved in monitoring the population of each facility so that scheduled movements do not create an overpopulation situation. Other responsibilities include: maintaining daily population capacities at each facility; coordinating a statewide transfer system to ensure the most efficient use of equipment and to preclude an imbalance in population at any one facility; monitoring the demographics of facility populations in order to meet the needs of the institution and the department; notifying victims and updating them on changes that could affect them.
