Public protection is paramount. Our work with offenders is first and foremost about ensuring communities are safe. By providing offenders with the means to rehabilitate, society is better protected against the effects of crime.
We manage offenders who pose a high risk of serious harm to the public. By tackling the causes of reoffending, we reduce the chance of an offender slipping back into the cycle of crime.
If the courts have awarded a particular sanction, it’s our job to make sure that it’s adhered to. Whether it’s a curfew or exclusion zone, a cognitive behaviour programme or drug and alcohol rehabilitation course – we make sure offenders stick to the terms of their sentences and give themselves the best hope of rehabilitation. And if needed, we also provide educational opportunities for offenders, and chances for them to engage with their local communities.
