Over the past decade the Queensland Department of Corrective Services has
successfully become a leader in the provision of safe and secure containment
through the implementation of new infrastructure and cutting edge
technologies. Building on this strong foundation we are now focused on
providing better access to meaningful rehabilitation opportunities for all
offenders… Despite a perception that community attitudes are becoming more punitive it can be stated that there remains strong community expectations that
corrective services should be about rehabilitation as well as punishment. (excerpt)
