Policy Unit

The Rhode Island Department of Corrections (RIDOC) Policy Unit is responsible for developing, finalizing, and disseminating all new and revised Department-level policies and procedures and ensuring they are consistent with applicable rules, regulations and statutes. These policies and procedures address the operational management of the institutions, programs and field services. These documents are intended to guide staff in the operation, management and administration of its facilities and functional units. Policy Unit staff will also assist individual managers with the development of unit-specific procedures to assure that they supplement, but do not contradict, Department-level policies and procedures.

The Policy Unit makes every effort to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of the information contained herein. Questions about policies should be directed to the Policy Unit by phone: (401) 462-2514 or via email: doc.policy@doc.ri.gov.
