The Georgia Department of Corrections runs the correctional facilities and penal system throughout Georgia on the state level. The current Commissioner of the GA Department of Corrections is Brian Owens.
The GA Department of Corrections currently oversees a total of around 30 different state prisons, with a number of additional facilities being spread out throughout the state. Currently, the GA Department of Corrections is known to hold close to 55000 individuals as inmates within its penal system. The GA Department of Corrections also controls a number of other facilities, such as boot camps which are designed to help individuals in a particular state of mind and with a particular set of problems.
The GA Department of Corrections also owns and operates Georgia Correctional Industries, which is a corporation in which inmates can work in order to create and manufacture goods. Georgia Correctional Industries, as it is owned by the GA Department of Corrections, can only sell to government agencies, but it is still a useful corporation, both for the fact of its output and for the fact that it trains inmates with useful skills.
Inmates within the Georgia Correctional Industries program may produce office furniture, road signs, and may even perform print services, all of which can help to train those inmates with the skills necessary to re-enter the community. Georgia Correctional Industries, under the oversight of the GA Department of Corrections, also offers such programs as Food and Farm Services, in which inmates might learn such skills.
