Why not focus on our strengths?

Driven by this question, we've launched the 5-Key Model for Reentry and Well-Being Development.

At multiple facilities, NDCS has begun training select team members and incarcerated individuals to become co-facilitators in this model. The model will touch every aspect of the rehabilitative process from intake to release to the community, including unit staff using this model in case management.

It has been incredibly inspiring to see the collaboration happenings in these trainings and the enthusiasm each person brings to this new and transformative model. #TransformNebraska...Read more

Teammates at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution (TSCI) proved that they have some serious baking skills! The Valentine’s Day bake sale brought together staff throughout the facility – both to contribute sweet treats and to take some home. To top it off, proceeds supported the TSCI Employee Activity Committee and their efforts to show appreciation to team members. Nice work, TSCI! #PeopleRead more

It’s not a pre-service graduation; this is our incredible team of new field training officers (FTOs) who recently completed training.

FTOs are a special role within NDCS and an essential link in preparing new teammates to be capable and confident in their positions. After graduating from pre-service training at the Staff Training Academy, new teammates are paired with FTOs at each facility, who walk alongside them as they learn the facility and its posts.

We’re thrilled to have this team eager to step into the lives of our people and create a smooth transition to NDCS. #PeopleRead more

These graduates of Reception and Treatment Center (RTC) programs represent a willingness to learn, grow and positively influence others.

They came together for a recognition ceremony to celebrate those who have recently completed programming at RTC. The graduates have taken the steps to engage in a variety of transformational programs that concentrate on changing criminogenic thinking, strengthening family connections, encouraging responsibility and building valuable job skills.

A special thank you to our teammates and community partners who make these programs possible! #People #ProgramsRead more

Keeping people safe is more than ensuring the security of the facility, it is also making sure team members, visitors and volunteers can arrive safely.

During the recent snow storm that swept across the Midwest, our maintenance teams, alongside the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT), did a fantastic job of ensuring roads were cleared and safe for travel.
