The Department of Corrections provides safe and secure institutional care for adults and youth committed to the custody of the Secretary of Corrections; emphasizes rehabilitation; supervises individuals on post-release supervision after serving their sentence or being granted parole or probations received through interstate compacts; and administers the Community Corrections Grant Program, which assists communities in alternative correctional services. The Department of Corrections, as part of the adult criminal justice system and juvenile justice system, contributes to public safety and supports victims of crime by exercising reasonable, safe, secure, and humane control of adult and juvenile offenders while encouraging and assisting them to become law-abiding citizens. In 2013, Executive Reorganization Order No. 42 placed all the responsibilities and functions of the Kansas Juvenile Justice Authority under the Department of Corrections.
