Improving Lives for Safer Communities
We Reduce Risk and Recidivism
A position in the Missouri Department of Corrections is more than a job. It's a calling.
Corrections employees transform lives. Throughout the state, the dedicated professionals on our team work with Missourians in 20 prisons and 44 probation and parole districts to advance public safety. We facilitate job training, rehabilitation, treatment, and education to equip Missourians involved in the criminal justice system with the skills they need to contribute to their communities, inside and outside our walls. About 95 percent of people who enter the prison system ultimately are released. Our job is to help them be good neighbors.
To realize our mission of improving lives for safer communities, we need talented staff in all job types — corrections officers and parole officers, teachers and counselors, cooks and maintenance workers, investigators, and support staff.
Join a team that makes a difference.
