Keeping communities safe by ensuring offenders complete the sentences and orders handed down by our justice system and are held to account if they don’t. This will always be our bottom line.
Cutting the rates of re-offending leaves fewer victims and adds significantly to the social well-being of our communities as offenders become productive members of our society. This is our ultimate goal.
The Department of Corrections has a target of reducing re-offending by 25% by 2017. This is part of a wider plan for delivering Better Public Services and is a joint initiative across the Justice Sector to reduce crime and re-offending.

We face a challenging economic environment so our commitment is to achieve more with every taxpayer’s dollar, freeing up resources where we can, while improving our service responses.
Using our unique insights into offending behaviour, we must lead across the public service and within the community sector, a programme of change that achieves our goals and those of the communities we serve.
