About Washington State Department of Corrections

Did you know prior to the 1970s, the state of Washington did not really have a corrections department? Did you know that there was a prison structure, but no one was really in charge of ensuring that this structure was doing God's work? That it was just there. Well, then during the 1970s, officials finally decided it was time to take their prison structure more seriously and have a department that was dedicated to ensuring that the prisons were operating at levels that were fair. During this time everything that was once was, was transferred directly over to his department where it would allow these people to get started working on things. The Department of Corrections within Washington is a huge department. They were giving a daunting task at first. After a bit, the corrections department would get in the groove and it would be one successful department as you see it today.
