Welcome to the Homepage of the Correctional Services Department (CSD) of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

The mission of the CSD is to protect the public and prevent crime for a better Hong Kong by providing a secure, safe, humane, decent and healthy environment for persons in custody, creating rehabilitation opportunities in collaboration with community stakeholders and promoting law-abiding and inclusive values through community education.

Since the promulgation of the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (the National Security Law) on 30 June 2020, social order has been progressively restored, thus enabling Hong Kong to be back on the track of development. However, with those involved in black-clad violence or contravened the National Security Law being remanded and sentenced, the penal population is on the increase. The rising penal population, coupled with the rampant COVID-19 epidemic, have posed unprecedented challenges to CSD. Thanks to all correctional officers who remain steadfast in duties and rise to the challenges courageously, we ride out the difficult times in solidarity. We will continue to perform our duties fearlessly and flexibly to ensure the stability and security of correctional institutions with a view to guarding the last element of Hong Kong’s criminal justice system. Meanwhile, we will continue to explore and develop different technology projects to uplift the operational efficiency of correctional institutions and the effectiveness of rehabilitation work so that we can keep enhancing Hong Kong’s correctional system.

The website provides easy access to the relevant information such as our Vision, Mission and Values statement, organisation chart, history and press releases. It also briefly introduces our work in custodial management and rehabilitation programmes as well as community education and activities co-organised with our partners. We hope that the above information would give you a better understanding of our role in society and help gain your support to CSD.

We appreciate your interest in our work. Your comments and suggestions on our services are always welcome.


WONG Kwok-hing, CSDSM
