Mission Statement

The mission of Marine Corps Corrections is to promote mission readiness, and assist commanders in the maintenance of discipline and law and order by providing a uniform system of restraint, detention, confinement and correctional services for those who have failed to adhere to legally established rules. This is accomplished through the administration of the Marine Corps Corrections system, absentee/deserter apprehension program, and enemy detention operations;  all of which provide effective opportunities by which offenders can achieve positive changes which result in successful restoration to duty or reintegration to civilian life.
