 Internal Affairs Branch

The Internal Affairs Branch is the central component of an integrated investigative system within the Department of Corrections. The Internal Affairs Branch mission is to enhance the proficiency of the investigative staff in the institutions and to conduct professional, thorough and objective investigations in fulfillment of the Commissioner’s administrative responsibilities, all in good keeping with the mission, goals and integrity of the Department.  

The branch is responsible for investigating allegations of misconduct by departmental staff and allegations of criminal activity by inmates, parolees, probationers, departmental staff, and vendors doing business with the Department of Corrections.

The branch provides oversight, assistance and training to the twelve (12) institutional internal affairs officers. Through the creation of a uniform training program, the Internal Affairs provides a professional approach using the latest investigative techniques and technological advancements.

The Internal Affairs Branch also works closely with other local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies on cases of mutual interest.
