About South Carolina Department of Corrections

The South Carolina Department of Corrections was established back in 1866. It was established after the South Carolina Legislature passed the bill to construct their very first state prison that will house felons rather than the felons be housed in county jails.

Then in 1960, the South Carolina Governor at the time decided it was time to reform the South Carolina Department of Corrections. Because during this time the South Carolina Department of Correction was not running the way it should have been operating at.

Even today, the South Carolina Department of Correction still reports directly to the Governor of South Carolina.

The South Carolina Department of Corrections is responsible for the operation and management of 21 facilities that are spread out within the state of South Carolina. The South Carolina Department of Correction also has 20,000 offenders within these facilities while also employing another 5,700 correctional officers to keep the facilities safe.
