About Michigan Department of Corrections (MI DOC):
The mission of the Michigan Department of Corrections is to create a safer Michigan by holding offenders accountable while promoting their success.
All adults and juveniles sentenced as adults convicted of offenses for which the statutory maximum is more than one year can be sentenced to the state's prison system which is under the jurisdiction of the Michigan Department of Corrections.

Most convicted offenders are not, however, sent to prison. Instead, most are supervised locally through probation while others are given a sentence of up to one year in a county jail. Probation supervision is provided by the department and by various Circuit Courts. Qualified offenders may be sentenced to Specialized Alternative Incarceration - a re-entry program that enhances their chances of success in the community - as a condition of their probation.

Convicted offenders who have served time in prison can be, if eligible, paroled. Parole is a period of supervision in the community.
