Annual Reports

Letter from the Commissioner

headshot of Commissioner Reagle

For the Indiana Department of Correction, 2022 was a year of significant accomplishments and a change in leadership. I want to sincerely thank my predecessor, Commissioner Rob Carter, for his committed service. We made incredible progress under his direction, and I’m proud to continue building on that solid foundation.

As we move forward, I want to focus on creating a workplace culture where everyone feels welcome, supported, and valued. Our staff are the backbone of the department, and they deserve our unwavering support.

Investing in our staff will be a top priority. As the correctional landscape evolves, we must stay adaptive and resilient to meet the challenges ahead. At the same time, we need to be preparing the next generation of leaders to take charge of this agency. We need to equip staff with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in their current roles as well as in the future.

The health and wellness of our staff are also very important. Working in corrections can be emotionally taxing and we need to provide the resources our staff need to continue to do their jobs. Our strategy will be to grow our programs that support both physical and mental health and offer new options and resources to address staff needs.

We will not waver from our commitment to ensuring public safety and assisting in the rehabilitation of those who are incarcerated. We continue to strive for successful reintegration for all re-entering citizens through partnerships with our communities and evidence-based programs.

Transparency and open communication are essential to building trust, and we will continue to engage with all stakeholders, including our staff, incarcerated population, valued partners, and Hoosiers across the state.

Thank you for being a part of what we do,
Meet Christina Reagle Commissoner of the Indiana Department of Corrections

Case Plan Credit Time

In 2022, the Case Plan Credit Time (CPCT) program was implemented. The transition to CPCT allows the IDOC to better prepare the incarcerated population to return to local communities. CPCT offers a multidisciplinary approach to programming, incentivizing the incarcerated individual’s behavior that reduces criminogenic risk factors, increasing their likelihood of not returning to incarceration upon release. Facility staff completed over 37,500 reviews, with our analyst processing almost 32,000. As a result, 374,079 days of additional earned credit time was given to incarcerated individuals across the state.

Re-Entry Simulations Across the State

To further prepare incarcerated individuals for release back into their community, re-entry monitors from Central Office ensured that all facilities hosted at least one re-entry simulation in 2022 and increasing that number to two for 2023. Developed by partners at the Federal Bureau of Prisons and adapted for IDOC facilities, these simulations showcase the challenges of returning to the community in a unique, interactive, and fun way. Staff also participate in the simulation’s game-like structure.


The Duke Energy Foundation awarded HIRE a $250,000 grant to provide educational opportunities for formerly incarcerated citizens and businesses, alleviating barriers to successful employment and developing new partnerships.

The grant, which runs through August 2023, aids HIRE focus with:

  • Direct client services: educational opportunities to skill up HIRE’s client workforce to meet business needs, including clean energy installation, and partnering with non-profits to assist with barriers formerly incarcerated citizens face, such as housing and transportation
  • Direct business services: assisting with recruitment, retention and hiring, and providing training on how to best work with individuals to promote success
  • Re-entry focused alliances: develop partnerships to support successful re-entry and long-term employment
In 2022 HIRE had 485 business partnerships with an average hourly wage (post-release) of $15.98.  There were 87 pre-release placements and 1,089 post release placements.

Community Corrections

Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) Grant

The Community Corrections Divisions is now in its second year implementing the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) Grant. The Innovations in Supervision Initiative grant is designed to improve community supervision and reduce recidivism. This project allows the state to not only evaluate Community Corrections agencies in Indiana, but to also provide a roadmap for the agencies to build on practices and assist with areas for growth. Community Corrections is using an instrument developed by the University of Cincinnati Corrections Institute, the Correctional Program Checklist-Community Supervision Agency (CPC-CSA) tool.

The Community Corrections (CC) Division staff worked to coordinate, communicate, and execute the goals and objectives for this project. Staff facilitated meetings with state level executives, attended and presented at CC Advisory Board Meetings, presented at conferences, and had countless calls and meeting with grantees to share information and help alleviate any concerns.

The third year of implementation promises to be even busier year, with 57 assessments to be completed, as well as additional task force meetings, and initiating the data collection phase of the validation study.

2022 Grant Funding Awards

The Department of Correction (IDOC) annually awards grants to counties encouraging them to develop a coordinated local corrections-criminal justice system and providing effective alternatives to imprisonment at the state level. In 2022, the following entities were awarded grant funding under the Community Corrections and Justice Reinvestment Grant. Grants awarded must focus on funding evidence-based programs, including programs that utilize cognitive behavioral interventions and have a primary goal of reforming justice involved individuals by working in a collaborative manner with local criminal justice agencies.
In 2022 there were a total of 262 programs with a total of $72.9 million awarded. For Community Corrections had 78 Programs totally $58.1 Million, Probation had 38 programs totaling $3.6 million, Pretrial Services had 21 programs totaling $2.2 Million, Court Programs had 57 programs totaling $6.1 Million, Prosecutor's Diversion had 7 Programs totaling $579 thousand, and Jail Treatment had 28 Programs totaling $2.2 Million.

Division of Parole Services

Growing Our Team

Across the state, 30 parole agents were promoted to the newly created ‘Parole Agent II’ position. This new position was developed to create promotional opportunities and upward mobility within the division. The Parole Agent II position creates an intermediate position between the assistant district supervisor and Parole Agent III. Those serving in the Parole Agent II position now function as team leaders in their districts assuming mid-level leadership roles.

New DIO Center

In July 2022, the Office of Internal Investigations (OII) in conjunction with Parole Services began the project of creating a Dispatch, IDACS, and Operations Center (DIO Center). This is the first central radio dispatch center for the department. This new center adds a layer of safety for staff actively working in communities across the state. Parole Services piloted the DIO Center in November with the Gary Parole Office, with statewide implementation soon after. This project was a collaboration between many divisions within the department including the construction of the center, the creation and development of policy and procedures, and the reclassification of 11 staff to operate the center.

Increased Wages

Employment rates and wages for those on parole climbed steadily in 2022. In January 2022, the average hourly wage was $16.36 an hour. By the end of 2022, it was over $17.00 an hour. This increase is attributed to the continued partnership between the division and the Hoosier Initiative for Re-Entry (HIRE).

Between Personnel Services - $13,155253, Utilities - $295,021, Miscellaneous Contract Services - $1,332,919, Supplies & Uniforms - $316,763, Equipment - None, Miscellaneous Administrative - $316,763, Food Service Contract - None, Medical Services Contract - None, Education Services Contract - None, Preventative Maintenance - None , Lease Payments - None, and Capital Projects- None, the Division's total expenses for 2022 was $15,470,330 for Parole Services

Break down by month of the adult population on parole in 2022.   Demographics have been broken down by male and female in addition to breaking it down further into race; black, white, and other. We then calculate the total number of males and females in addition to the total number of individuals on parole.   We then look at the percentage of employment along with the aver hourly wage.   Finally we are analyzing those individuals who have returned for either a technical, delinquent, felony, or misdemeanor and how that compare to the total population.

Medical Services Division

Hepatitis C Treatment

The IDOC Medical Division made improvements on efforts to reduce the spread of the Hepatitis C virus in facilities statewide. Since January 2022, 1,918 patients started on treatment for their infections, more than double the number for 2021. One goal for 2023 is to expedite the beginning of treatment after a patient has been identified.

Service Directive Review

A review of all health care service directives in 2022 ensured compliance and improvements in care provided. One major change came in the form of collaboration with classifications to allow patients with mental health needs to transfer to more level 1/Work Release programs. Additionally, a change to the Behavioral Health codes now allows for better tracking those in addiction recovery services who are releasing to the community so the department’s transitional health team can ensure continuity of care.

Substance Abuse Treatment Grant

IDOC Health Services received a $1 million grant from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute to assist with Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT). The RSAT grant allows for comprehensive care for patients as well as an enhancement of services from the minute they arrive with the department through their release back to their community.

Number of Incarcerated Individuals Treated for Hepatitis C. 2022 stared and ended with less than 100 cases. There was a spike in April with a little more than 250 cases. We then saw treatments trend down with a small spike in August with a little more than 200 cases before it steady decreased back to less than 100 cases in December.

Division of Diversity & Development

2022 saw the appointment of Deputy Commissioner Erica Parish. While only in the position during the final months of the year, she spent time meeting and coordinating with staff from across the department to develop her Future Engagement Access Training or FEAT plan for the following year. This included the implementation of a revamped staff culture survey that assures the department is listening and gathering feedback on the culture and daily operations of the department. The ultimate everyday goal of Diversity & Development is to educate and support the agency.


Staff Development and Training (SD&T) collaborated with contract partners at Mi-Case and KPMG to identify key information pertaining to the new online management system, DELTA, since late 2021. SD&T was tasked with developing a plan to train more than 6,000 employees prior to the “Go-Live” date in 2023. In November, 272 staff were certified to instruct DELTA to the end users.

eLearning Modules

Using new software, Articulate 360, the Curriculum Development team updated all eLearning modules. Updates include more interactive modules, knowledge checks throughout, and the option to create content so it can be viewed using various smart devices, such as cell phones or tablets. Not only does this allow staff to complete their required eLearning at a time that best fits their schedule, but it is also ADA compliant, ensuring we are providing the necessary resources to staff to assist with completing their required training.

Staff Wellness

To better focus on physical wellness, SD&T with the help of Recruitment & Retention Coordinator Jerome Williams, created a 5K walking & running series for all staff and the public. The events kicked off at the Staff Development & Training Annual Training Retreat in June. There was a total of 4 run/walks scheduled at New Castle, two at Hummel Park in Plainfield, and Michigan City for the third Experienced and Emerging Leaders Program.

As of December 31, 2022 the department had 4,756 total staff of which 3,481 were male and 2,074 were female. Out of those employees 3,582 identify as white, 810 Black, 155 Hispanic/Latino, 43 Asian, 50 American Indiana/ Alaska Native, 10 Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, 54 were 2 or more races, and 52 were not specified.  Generationally speaking out of those employees 7 belong to the Builders generation, 739 Baby Boomers, 1,726 Gen X, 1,559 Millennials, and 685 Gen Z.

Division of Construction Services

New Facility

Designs are being finalized on the new construction to replace and renew Westville Correctional Facility. An additional $800 million dollars was allocated by state officials to cover unprecedented material and construction cost increases in the market following the COVID-19 pandemic. Preliminary work is set to begin in 2023 including earth-moving and preparatory renovation work on existing buildings that will be repurposed.

New Perimeter

A new fence was installed around the perimeter of the Indiana State Prison and several trees removed to heighten staff sightlines. These updates aim to further prevent incidents involving citizens coming onto the property and attempting to toss contraband over the wall.

Facility Improvements

Miami Correctional Facility (MCF) made several improvements to increase the safety and security in the housing units. Thicker cell windows were added to the AHU Housing Unit making it more difficult for incarcerated individuals to break the windows out. In addition, outside recreation cages were installed. All Units in the facility received new LED lighting upgrades in housing unit day rooms and cells. This now provides brighter lighting and making it more difficult to make weapons from lighting materials. As a result of these changes, use of force incidents dropped by 57% and staff assaults were down by 70% compared to 2021.

Indiana Correctional Industries

A seasoned professional with more than 12 years of experience in corrections, Lindsey has worked for the department and ICI as a Transition Specialist, Program Coordinator, Plant Manager, and Assistant Re-Entry and Operations Manager.

A Tactical Approach

ICI launched its new line of “Torch Tactical” pants in December 2022. ICI invested in new equipment and training to create the new “Torch Tactical” clothing line. The new pants are being manufactured at the Miami Correctional Facility and IDOC will no longer be dependent on third-party vendors to purchase pants and other tactical clothing.
