The Correctional Services Department (CSD) launched its 2019 Annual Review Electronic Version today (June 5), showcasing the department's work last year. In 2019, Hong Kong's society encountered many challenges. During such a difficult time, the CSD has remained steadfast as the final element of the criminal justice system.
The department's 2019 Annual Review has recorded how the department overcame trials, placed a dual emphasis on both safe custody and appropriate rehabilitation in correctional institutions, and promoted law-abiding and inclusive values through community education.
In addition to photographs and videos, the review for the first time uses animated cartoons to briefly introduce two smart prison projects, namely the Robotic Monitoring System and the Persons in Custody Self-service Kiosk.
Members of the public are welcome to view the annual review on mobile phones or tablets by browsing the CSD's website at www.csd.gov.hk/annualreview/2019/web/en/index.html.
