Our Purpose

While our core purpose is to foster community safety and crime prevention through humane containment, supervision and interventions for offenders, we are also initiating and contributing to a range of coordinated, integrated and collaborative groups, agencies and strategies in order to deliver safer and more secure communities.

Our overall role in fulfilling this purpose is to provide corrective services in Queensland in accordance with the Corrective Services Act 2006 (PDF), the Corrective Services Regulation 2006 (PDF) and related legislation.

So, while we operate correctional centres, district offices and reporting centres across the State, we are actively working on integrating our offender management systems to ensure that all offenders are provided with appropriate classification and supervision as well as programs, education and vocational training that will maximise their chance to reintegrate successfully into society when they are released.

An increasing number of projects and services are carried out in conjunction with other government departments and stakeholder groups. Examples of these include Borallon Correctional Centre's collaboration with the Queensland Police Service's Crime Stopper's project; our partnership with Police and the Department of Justice and the Attorney-General in the Concerned Persons' Register and the Integrated Justice Information System (IJIS); and a Memorandum of Understanding with Centrelink, which ensures that released prisoners have timely access to government assistance.

The department continues its strong commitment to equity and cultural diversity. We are actively involved in the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Justice Agreement, recognise and endeavour to meet the special needs of female offenders and have recently provided foreign language induction material for non-English speaking prisoners.
