The Division of Adult Correction is responsible for the care, custody, and supervision of all individuals sentenced after conviction of a felony or serious misdemeanor in North Carolina. Sentences range from probation served in the community to active prison sentences served in one of the state's 66 prison facilities. North Carolina's general statutes direct the division to provide adequate custodial care, educational opportunities, and medical and psychological treatment services to all incarcerated persons while at the same time providing community-based supervision and some needed social services to clients on probation, parole, or post-release supervision.
