Following the Executive Action taken by Gov. Brian Kemp, DCS is committed to doing our part to assist communities impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. DCS Offices will remain open by appointment only and access to secure areas is restricted. In any circuit where a Shelter in Place Order exists for any part of the circuit, the office will only be open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00 AM-2:00 PM. Should new shelter in place directives occur, those newly affected circuits will modify their office hours accordingly. Signage will be placed on the door with the operating hours listed, as well as a contact phone number that is available from 8:00-4:30 Monday - Friday. Please keep in mind that DCS staff should be available by phone during business hours. Our Albany Office will be closed until further notice and we are working with local officials to closely monitor the need for additional closures as circumstances arise.

We continue to use our technological platform to ensure community supervision and reentry services are provided in a manner that protects our communities and provides for the safety of our employees. Officers and other employees are using video and telephone interactions whenever possible to remain in contact with individuals under supervision as well as other criminal justice system stakeholders. Our counseling programs and a host of other essential treatment services are now being delivered digitally. However, our internship program remains suspended and will be reevaluated once cleared to do so.
DCS is also actively involved with emergency response efforts. Several of our hardworking officers are providing important security details at testing stations and emergency management centers where protective equipment is being facilitated throughout the state. Additionally, DCS has helped create efficiencies by partnering with DHS to ensure their employees have the necessary equipment and accessibility for teleworking.
The DCS Team is committed to staying at the forefront of this fight. During this challenging time, we have a responsibility to each other to adhere to the most current updates from the appropriate officials.
