The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS) employs approximately 2100 individuals who are making a difference everyday on the job and in their communities. We believe the great work performed by staff is most worthy of recognition. Employees are honored on a monthly or quarterly basis in each of the 10 facilities as well as Central Administration. In addition, annual awards are selected by the Director for agency-wide recognition.
The Department offers a wide range of opportunities for employees to be involved in programs and initiatives throughout the agency. Whether the topic is facility/program specific or encompasses an agency-wide practice, we encourage a diverse group of employees make up our workgroups or Process Action Teams. Other opportunities include specialized groups (emergency response teams, crisis negotiation team, etc.), guest instructor for a variety of training classes, accreditation and security audit teams.
