The DC Department of Corrections (DOC) operates two jail facilities: the Correctional Treatment Center (CTF), and the Central Detention Facility also known as the DC Jail (CDF). The facilities are adjacent to one another and are located in Southeast Washington, D.C.
On February 24, 2020, CIC staff met with DOC staff at the CTF and CDF about promising practices related to programs within the DOC. As part of the DOC inspection, the CIC toured areas of both the CTF and CDF, including all program units, educational classroom spaces, chapel areas, and general population units.
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.
