What We Do
The Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) operates state
prisons, state jails, parole, and provides funding and certain oversight
of community supervision (previously known as adult probation).
TDCJ primarily supervises adult offenders (persons 17 or
older) assigned to state supervision. For information about the juvenile
justice system, visit the Texas Youth Commission or
Juvenile Probation Commission websites. For information about
county jails, contact the Texas Commission on Jail Standards.
The TDCJ website describes the agency's functions: programs involved; statistical information;
publications; assistance for crime victims and their family and friends;
guidance for offenders' families; and links to other criminal justice
sites including the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.
