The video includes the two core areas of custodial management and rehabilitation services, as well as community education and collaboration with partners.
A spokesman for the department said that the video adopts the theme "Shared Mission, Unrivalled Challenges" to showcase the unique role of the department among the various disciplined services, as correctional officers serve as both guardians of society and rehabilitation facilitators.
