The Judiciary and New Zealand Parole Board

Corrections works with the Judiciary and New Zealand Parole Board (NZPB) to ensure that they make informed decisions that reflect the risks and issues posed by the offenders that we manage.

Our advice is based on the institutional knowledge that we hold about offending behaviour, and on our individual assessments of offenders that we have worked with through our case managers and probation officers.

The first priority is maintaining and improving public safety, followed by promoting rehabilitation to contribute to reducing re-offending. In line with these, Corrections provides advice and documentation to support assessments, helping them to make decisions that are appropriate for the individual circumstances of each offender.
