About

What is the Corrections Ombudsman?

The Ombudsman’s role has a long and honorable tradition as a means of protecting against abuse, bias and other improper treatment or unfairness. The Office of the Corrections Ombudsman provides a mechanism for the continuing resolution of issues, problems or complaints of inmates sentenced within New Jersey’s correctional system regarding their living conditions and other matters.

The office investigates complaints when an inmate has failed to get satisfactory results through available institutional channels.

Serving as a designated neutral, the Corrections Ombudsman is an advocate for fairness who also acts as a source of information and referral, aids in answering questions and assists in the resolution of concerns during critical situations.

Since the office is independent from and external to the correctional facilities, it ensures objectivity and credibility among inmates and staff. In considering any given instance or concern, the interests and rights of all parties who may be involved are taken into account.
