Working with offenders
Each week we manage 8,500 people in prisons and 31,000 offenders in our communities.
Our staff are committed to supporting offenders to help them address their offending and gain skills that will help them lead a crime-free life.
Corrections protects the public of New Zealand from those who can harm them, by:
- making sure prisoners, parolees and other offenders in the community comply with the sentences and orders imposed by the Courts and Parole Board
- providing offenders with rehabilitation programmes, education and job training that will turn their lives around and break the cycle of re-offending.
We provide a range of programmes that help to reduce re-offending.
