Community Investment

​The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services (DPSCS) is committed to how we collaborate throughout state government and statewide in the implementation of reform projects and initiatives including reentry, crime prevention, and community engagement. We actively engage with stakeholders and seek best practices in areas of diversion, intervention, rehabilitation, and prevention internally within DPSCS and externally in the community for a vast number of areas to support both adults and youth. Public safety and wellness are our priorities in an effort to reduce recidivism and to deter individuals from committing acts that would sentence them to prison. To accomplish this, we focus on a holistic approach by creating solutions designed to improve processes that help encourage incarcerated individuals and those already home to utilize rehabilitative services behind the walls and in the community. We will also work more to engage with youth through messaging and events to deter them from a life of crime, helping to inspire hope and opportunities.
