June 19, 1865 or “Juneteenth” marks the day that the last Africans in America were freed from enslavement, more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was passed. Today, we celebrate and reflect on the magnitude of this historic day, the resilience of the formerly enslaved during the long journey to freedom, as well as the countless contributions their descendants have made not only in our country but across the globe. ❤️🖤💚

Street Law is a year-long introduction to legal concepts and analytical skills taught by Georgetown University law students in the DOC. DOC students focus on concrete issues of law that relate to their own lives and are expected to prepare papers and presentations and engage in debates, simulations and negotiations on issues of law. The culmination of the class is a mock trial. On Saturday, January 19, Superior Court Judge Lyn Leibovitz presided over the mock trial where a class of female DOC students competed as two teams: the prosecution and the defense. Ana Van Hollen, the class instructor, brought her family as special guests, and her father, Senator Chris Van Hollen, served as the jury foreman. It was an educational and uplifting event for everyone!

DOC students had the unique experience of collaborating with Oxford University students in England through the magic of technology. Bryonn Bain, Associate Professor for UCLA's Department of African American Studies and Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance and Kennedy Center fellow is a frequent collaborator with the DC DOC's division of College and Career Readiness. Currently serving as a fellow at Oxford University, Professor Bain combined two classes across the sea to explore poetry as a form of social awareness. The students from both institutions worked together to create a community poem.

Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program founder Lori Pompa spent a day with DOC students and conducted a workshop for staff at the DOC's Center for Professional Development and Learning. The Inside-Out program facilitates dialogue and education around social issues, bringing together university and DOC students for semester-long courses. This long-standing partnership has included American and Howard University participants at the DOC and will be expanded in the coming year. Ms. Pompa and guests also attended ground-breaking officer training courses that integrate DOC residents and cadet officers in weekly classes based on the Inside-Out model.

General information

**This page is only operated during business hours, Monday through Friday.** DOC currently operates one of the largest municipal jail systems in the country with an average daily population of approximately 1,700 inmates. Those in the custody of DOC include males (93 percent) and females (7 percent). The DOC system is comprised of two primary correctional facilities—the Central Detention Facility also known as the DC Jail and the privately operated Correctional Treatment Facility. In addition, DOC contracts with two privately operated halfway houses for the community placement of male/female inmates that offer a variety of educational opportunities and other programming services. In 2012, DOC achieved national reaccreditation of its medical and mental health service delivery system by the National Commission on Correctional Heath Care (NCCHC). NCCHC accreditation is recognized as the gold standard for jail health care programs. DOC has also received recognition for its pioneering efforts in automatic HIV/AIDS testing, as well as its commitment to innovative thinking. Both the DC Jail and Correctional Treatment Facility are fully accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA). This designation reflects compliance with critical safety, security, operational and programmatic mandates.

I have requested repeatedly that, someone who I am very close to, be transferred back to CTF since he is 59 years old. I have had numerous telephone calls and emails sent that go unanswered. As if it doesn't matter. In going in circles, the staff of the jail continues to lie to me about beds available. I know that inmates are being transferred to CTF and that there are plenty of beds available. With the incompetence that goes on at the jail, I fear that my only other choice is to report the injustices and living conditions to the media. These inmates are still human, regardless of the crime they committed. This may seem mundane and not important, but to me, it matters. A lot.
