Welcome to the Homepage of the Correctional Services Department.

It is the mission of the Correctional Services Department to protect the public and reduce crime by the provision of secure, safe, humane, decent and healthy environment for people in custody, opportunities for rehabilitation of offenders, and working in collaboration with the community and other agencies.

We are committed to striving for continuous improvement in our dual roles as Society's Guardian and Rehabilitation Facilitator which together with your support, help to foster a safer and more inclusive society.

This homepage provides an introduction on the services and activities that we provide to achieve our mission including those covered under the two core areas of custodial management and rehabilitation services as well as those in community education and working with partners. After all, it briefs you about our initiatives of promoting a culture of law-abiding, drug free and support for offender rehabilitation among the youths.

The website also gives you an easy access to the relevant information such as our VMV statement, organisation, history and press releases. We hope that this would enhance your awareness of our role to the society and engage your support on our mission.

We appreciate your interest in our work. Your comments and suggestions for improvement of services are most valued.


Mr. YAU Chi-chiu, SBS, CSDSM
Commissioner of Correctional Services
