Today, the Bureau includes more than 105 institutions, 6 regional offices, a Central Office (headquarters), and community corrections offices that oversee community corrections centers and home confinement programs. The regional offices and the Central Office provide administrative oversight and support to the institutions and community corrections offices. The Bureau is responsible for the custody and care of more than 180,000 Federal offenders. Approximately 85 percent of these inmates are confined in Bureau operated correctional institutions or detention centers. The remainder are confined in secure facilities operated primarily by private corrections companies and to a lesser extent by state and local governments, and in privately-operated community corrections centers. The Bureau protects public safety by ensuring Federal offenders serve their sentences of imprisonment in institutions that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure. The Bureau helps reduce future criminal activity by encouraging inmates to participate in a range of programs that have been proven to help them adopt a crime-free lifestyle upon their return to the community. The Bureau's most important resource is its staff. The approximately 35,000 employees of the Bureau of Prisons ensure the security of Federal prisons, provide inmates with needed programs and services, and model mainstream values. The Bureau's employees help the agency meet its obligation to protect public safety and provide security and safety to the staff and inmates in its facilities.
