Maryland Commission on Correctional Standards

The Maryland Commission on Correctional Standards was established by the General Assembly to advise the secretary of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services regarding standards for state, local and privately-operated correctional facilities. The commission staff audits correctional facilities and private home detention monitoring agencies to determine levels of compliance, develop audit reports and provide technical assistance to correct areas of noncompliance. Trained volunteers are used extensively to accomplish the inspection process. Final audit reports of correctional facilities are reviewed by commission members, who are appointed by the governor for a term of three years.

The commission's work is forwarded to the secretary.
