Who we are
Corrections is one of the largest government departments in New Zealand, employing over 8,000 staff, the majority of whom work with offenders in either our 17 prisons or Community Corrections sites across New Zealand.
Every day Corrections works with a variety of groups and agencies to protect the public and ensure that offenders receive the help they need to turn their lives around. Our 2,500 registered volunteers are invaluable in our work to reduce re-offending.
Corrections was formed in 1995 on the principles of rehabilitation and public safety - which remain at the core of what we do.Find out more
