The CIC was established by the Revitalization Act of 1997 and expanded through the District of Columbia Jail Improvement Act of 2003.  Through its mandate, the CIC collects information from many different sources, including facility inspections, communication with incarcerated DC residents, and community outreach.  During site visits, the CIC inspects a facility, interviews staff and DC residents at the facility, and assesses programs and services available to inmates.  The CIC releases reports on inspected facilities, along with an annual report addressing broader issues affecting the conditions of confinement of incarcerated DC residents.
