The DC Department of Corrections (DOC) operates two jail facilities: the Correctional Treatment Center (CTF), and the Central Detention Facility (CDF) also known as the DC Jail. The facilities are adjacent to one another and are located in Southeast Washington, D.C. The DOC also operates the Central Cell Block holding cells, and contracts with two local halfway houses: Hope Village and the Fairview.
The CIC visited CTF on February 25, 2019, and CDF on February 26, 2019. At both facilities the CIC met with executive staff to discuss the process and challenges surrounding access to outdoor recreation. This report documenting fiscal year 2019 information is a supplement to the fiscal year 2020 report.
The CIC thanks its staff, board members, interns, volunteers, DOC central office and facility staff, incarcerated DC residents and their loved ones who have contributed to this report.
