Corrective Services enables people who are found guilty of offences to achieve socially responsible behaviour, thereby reducing re-offending and contributing to a safer society.
Corrective Services Tasmania includes Community Corrections and the Prison Service. Both of these divisions work to achieve common goals as stated above.
The Parole Board is a statutory body and operates independently from Corrective Services. However, Corrective Services provides secretarial and administrative assistance to the Parole Board.
The strategic direction of the Corrections system as a whole in Tasmania is described in Breaking the Cycle: Tasmanian Corrections Plan (2011-2020).
