WHO WE ARE | Message from the Director

Welcome to the website of the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District of Columbia (CSOSA). You will find a wealth of information on our programs and services as well as our efforts to deliver state-of-the-art community supervision to the nation’s capital.

CSOSA enhances public safety by effectively supervising adults under our jurisdiction. We reduce recidivism by implementing best practices that achieve successful outcomes; support the fair administration of justice; and promote accountability, inclusion, and success.

CSOSA places great value in its partnerships with community organizations, local and federal criminal justice agencies, city government, the faith community, and individual citizens in promoting both successful reintegration of the supervised population and public safety for all residents and visitors of the District.

I encourage you to explore our website and learn more about the mission of our agencywhat we do, and the positive impact we have in the District. You can also follow us on X (formerly known as Twitter, @DC_CSOSA), like our Facebook page (/DCCSOSA), and connect with us on LinkedIn (CSOSA) to stay up-to-date on our work.
