Corrections and Detention Industry

The Correctional and Detention Services industry aims to provide a safe, secure and humane correctional system that protects the community.

This industry encompasses the operation and management of prisons, community correctional facilities, programs for adult offenders, immigration detention centres and juvenile detention facilities. It is important to address all aspects of security when it comes to this industry, as it is vital to public safety, extremely complex and constantly changing.
