Friday 18th January 2019 is National Corrections Day.
Corrections Day is an opportunity to recognise the tireless work and efforts of our frontline staff and those who work behind the scenes to reduce reoffending and to make the community safer.
Corrective Services NSW first held a ‘Corrections Day’ on Friday 19 January 2017. The day was such a success that the Corrective Services Administrators’ Council approved the establishment of an annual day.
This year the theme is Working Corrections. It recognises vocational training, prison industry, employment and community service and celebrates the role our staff play in contributing to this important area of rehabilitation and reparation
