The Division of Correctional Programming and Services is committed to serving the State of Maine by ensuring residents—from the recently incarcerated to the long-term committed—leave our facilities with the skills, treatment, and education needed to succeed after their period of incarceration.

To ensure effectiveness we monitor programming by:

  • Regularly reporting on key performance measure outcomes.
  • Ensuring programming and treatment services are evidence-based and adhere to national best practices.
  • Making quality, appropriate programming accessible to appropriate residents.
  • Monitoring programs and program delivery for fidelity.
  • Training, coaching, and mentoring staff to enhance their proficiency in delivering programs and services.
  • Using current technology for program delivery.
