Total Efficiency Accountability Management System (TEAMS)

TEAMS' doctrine is that every unit within the DOC affects how the agency performs its mission, and that staff should be agency-focused, not narrowly unit-oriented. All are expected to seek and work together to realize the Department's goals.

Senior staff hold monthly TEAMS meetings with frontline managers (wardens and certain other supervisors). At these meetings, the wardens describe conditions at their respective jails, explain variances in their performance indicators, and gain guidance on strategies to solve specific problems. Also participating in these interactive problem-solving sessions are non-uniform and uniformed administrators who lend their expertise at appropriate junctures.
