Correctional Services

The role of correctional staff is multi-faceted, providing safe and secure custody to those entrusted into our care, protecting the community and reducing reoffending.

Corrections is fundamentally a people profession, transforming lives and the wider community, by not only the supervision of individuals but also through interpersonal contact, positive relationships, role modeling, mentorship and support of the behavioral change process toward a crime-free life.

A correctional environment demands the best, and our people come to us from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. What they will have in common is an ability to relate to people, exceptional communication and interpersonal skills, a commitment to supporting their colleagues, maintaining the highest level of integrity and the the knowledge that what they do will have a positive impact on their communities.

Correctional staff play an integral role in the care, supervision, rehabilitation and security of the centre.

Comprehensive training and preparation will empower correctional staff to perform correctional functions to a high level and manage risk through thorough risk assessment processes and systems.

    • Correctional Case Officer
