Committee on Community Support for Rehabilitated Offenders


line

Background

For the purpose of pursuing the long term goal of gaining community support for rehabilitated offenders and gauging views from various sectors of the community on re-integration issues, the Commissioner of Correctional Services appointed the Committee on Community Support for Rehabilitated Offenders (CCSRO) in November 1999 with community leaders, employers, education sector, professionals and representatives of non-government organisations and government departments to advise on rehabilitation programmes, and re-integration and publicity strategies.

 

 

Terms of Reference

  1. To advise the Commissioner of Correctional Services on the programmes and reintegration strategies of rehabilitated offenders into the community;
  2. To promote community support for rehabilitated offenders through education, publicity and public involvement.

 

Major functions

On the advice of CCSRO, a series of publicity and public education activities has been held since 1999 with a view to enhancing the community's awareness that :

  1. while many offenders are willing to lead a law-abiding life after release, they need acceptance and support of their family and the community to be successful;
  2. opportunities of working and living without prejudice on their past wrongdoing are essential for their re-integration into the community;
  3. employers can assist by providing job opportunities to rehabilitated offenders; and
  4. the successful re-integration of rehabilitated offenders not only helps them live a useful and healthy life but also reduces crime and builds a safe society.
