The Department of Corrections (DOC) is the largest employer in the state of Connecticut and has been for several years. Over the last two decades, CT has made great strides to improve its department of corrections by establishing new, more modern, and humane units, such as the T.R.U.E. Unit (Cheshire) and W.O.R.T.H Unit (York), and to reduce the total number of incarcerated persons. In many ways, CT has been a leader in justice reform in the nation, yet it continues to incarcerate far more people than other European nations. In this way, one can argue that CT is the best of the worst.
