The next exciting step in your administrative career
The Corrections Branch plays a leading role in the criminal justice system by protecting the community through offender management and control. The Branch manages community work service and supports offenders to make positive changes in their behaviour and attitudes. Adult Custody is one of two divisions of the Corrections Branch. Adult Custody provides custodial supervision for adults sentenced to incarceration and those remanded to custody. It provides core programs and additional services which balance risks and needs; ensures linkage with Community Corrections based on common core programming and integrated case management; communicates with stakeholders and participates as a pro-active partner in the criminal justice system. The management team of a correctional centre works within unique operational imperatives: risk-based supervision, proven rehabilitation programs, fiscal efficiency achieved primarily through well planned staff and shift management, compliance with legislation, policy, security and safety standards, 24 x 7 operation, and positive interactions with government, local agencies and interest groups.
