Institution Administration
The superintendent  is the person ultimately responsible for all aspects of a smooth running institution. To make this task easier, three assistant superintendents divide the various responsibilities into three major categories. Even with the assistant superintendents, there are some areas that report directly to his office or to his executive assistant.

Assistant Superintendent Security
Security staff are the people in uniform who make up the majority of the staff at the penitentiary. A military style chain of command is used. Captains are the highest ranking security staff who report directly to the security manager or assistant superintendent of security.
Security is responsible for all aspects of institution security, including the special housing units, STG (gang) management and supervising inmate work crews. Security staff must supervise the inmates, conduct searches, respond to emergencies and write reports about inmate misconduct.

Assistant Superintendent of Correctional Rehabilitation
Correctional Rehabilitation includes most of the inmate self-help programs. Also included are the education sections, legal library, counselors and the activities section. Correctional Rehabilitation encompasses a wide variety programs.

Assistant Superintendent Administrative Services
The assistant superintendent for administrative services supervises many diverse areas. Falling under his authority are the institution maintenance shops, inmate store, motor pool, food services, and the office of the Inmate Work Program Manager.

Executive Assistant to the Superintendent
The superintendent's executive assistant serves as the public information officer for the institution. The executive assistant responds to many routine concerns and inquiries from the public, institution staff, inmates, inmate's visitors and family members, the media, and other public agencies.
