Corrections manages sixteen male prisons and three female prisons around New Zealand.
Corrections provides a secure, safe and humane environment for prisoners and conditions are tightly regulated by law and international convention.
Corrections also works to reduce re-offending by putting prisoners – most of whom must eventually be released – through rehabilitation programmes addressing the causes of their offending and reintegration initiatives to help them return to the community on release from prison.
The links below provide specific information about how Corrections manages offenders in prison.
