Iraq comes to SC for advice on Corrections

Members from the Iraqi and Kurdish delegation have sought advice from our own Director of the SC Department of Corrections, Mr. Jon Ozmint. The US Department of Justice recommended the Iraqi Delegation to South Carolina to learn how to run a department with such limited funds.

In a conversation with Mr. Ozmint, I have learned that the SCDC is the least funded Corrections Department in the United States in all measurable categories. We are proud to have Mr. Ozmint run this uber-efficient agency saving the taxpayer millions.
