To protect, to rehabilitate and to serve

Adult community corrections

The Department of Justice, Corrective Services manages around 12,000 adult offenders at any one time. Between 5,000-5,500 of these offenders are completing their sentence in the community.

Adult offenders in the community are managed by Adult Community Corrections, which operates around 30 Community Corrections centres throughout the State.

These offenders are usually:

  • serving a community order;
  • completing custodial sentences under community supervision, which is known as parole; or
  • on bail for an offence either waiting conviction or sentence.

Adult Community Corrections' staff contribute to community safety through effective and responsible adult offender management which focuses on reducing reoffending.
