Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Correction and Rehabilitation (DOCR) is to protect and serve the residents of Montgomery County and the general public by providing progressive and comprehensive correctional, rehabilitative, and community re-entry services. These functions are achieved through the operation of well-managed and effective correctional programs, including: the use of pre-trial supervision; secure incarceration; community treatment; reintegration programs; highly accountable security methods and procedures in each operating unit and program; and effective, progressive administration and management oversight.

The FY20 estimates reflect funding based on the FY20 approved budget. The FY21 and FY22 figures are performance targets based on the FY21 approved budget and funding for comparable service levels in FY22.



  • Begin phased initiative to retrofit cell vents, bunks, and doors to reduce opportunities for self harm. Highest priority areas will be addressed first.
  • Implement electronic health records to modernize the correctional health records system.
  • Add six correctional officers to support new mandates and legal requirements related to the management of inmates located in restrictive housing per Maryland Chapters 526 and 324 of 2019.
  • Correct a structural budget deficiency in funding for sanitation, hygiene, and disease control. Vents at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility will also be cleaned.
  • In collaboration with Department of Health and Human Services, institute a Medication Assisted Treatment program for Opioid Disorders for inmates within DOCR.
  • Expand General Education Diploma (GED) services to include Spanish speaking classes.
  • Install new all-in-one recycling stations at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility and the Montgomery County Detention Center to promote a greener County.
  • Continue to develop Departmental dashboards to produce timely and accessible critical information for the purpose of improved monitoring and analysis of operational issues, tracking outcomes, creating priorities, and making substantive decisions.


Innovations and Productivity Improvements

  • In collaboration with Department of General Services, implement the Montgomery County Detention Center (MCDC) Stabilization project to reduce the facility's existing footprint by demolishing unused space that will save on building maintenance, repairs, and energy costs.
  • Replaced kitchen equipment at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF) that was beyond useful life to reduce maintenance and repair costs for aging and obsolete equipment, eliminate service disruptions, and provide safer more efficient food service operations.
  • Implemented Telestaff system to create efficiencies in scheduling and staff deployment.
  • In collaboration with Department of Technology Services, completed several modules of the DOCR Jail Management System to improve efficiencies throughout the department. The new modules eliminate the manual diminution process and streamlines business systems to process sentence diminution and restitution payment in real time.
