The Human Resources Division is responsible for personnel services recruitment, training, research and accreditation.


Personnel Unit

The Personnel Unit performs the day-to-day personnel services required for a large organization: payroll, timesheets, performance evaluations, personnel files, reports, statistics, etc.

The Compliance Unit maintains and reviews the official manuals (policies & procedures, post orders, inmate handbook, etc.), oversees facility certification by the Maryland Commission on Correctional Standards and accreditation by the American Correctional Association.

The Recruitment Unit is comprised of correctional officers who represent the Department at career-related gatherings, place recruitment materials in the community, and carry out other facets of the Department's recruitment plan, which is aimed at providing a steady supply of new recruits for correctional officer positions.
