The Policy Unit is responsible for developing, finalizing, and disseminating all new and revised Department level policies and procedures and ensuring they are consistent with applicable rules, regulations, statutes, and national standards (American Correctional Association). These policies and procedures address the operational management of the institutions, programs, and field services. These documents are intended to guide staff in the operation, management, and administration of its facilities and functional units. Also, the Policy Unit staff will assist individual unit managers to develop unit-specific procedures insuring that they supplement, but do not contradict Department level policies.

The RIDOC Policy Unit makes every effort to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of the information contained herein. Questions about policies should be directed to the Policy Unit by phone: (401) 462-2514 or via email: doc.policy@doc.ri.gov.
