QCS are committed to the critical role of community safety and crime prevention through the humane containment, supervision and rehabilitation of offenders. Our business has a complexity unmatched by many other areas of public administration. Challenges faced in the community—problematic substance use, poor mental health, physical ailments and social disadvantage—are experienced in a greater proportion in the correctional population. The sole purpose of our business is to ensure those who come into with the corrective system are less likely to return to crime. We embed evidence based practice in every facet of the business and improve the safety and security of our officers, prisoners, offenders and, most importantly, of all Queenslanders. To deliver corrective services to the highest standard, we must embrace every opportunity to meet opportunities head on and harness the best evidence-based practices to reduce crime.
Queensland Corrective Services manages more than 9,000 prisoners in correctional centres and 18,000 offenders subject to supervision in the community. More than 6000 corrective services officers deliver services across Queensland and are located in high and low security correctional centres, work camps, community corrections regional and district offices and reporting centres, and headquarters in the Brisbane CBD.
