In response to the growing importance of the reformation of offenders, the Correctional Services Department (CSD) has set up a new division to focus on rehabilitation services for offenders since January 1998.
The new Rehabilitation Division is headed by Assistant Commissioner (Rehabilitation) and comprises the following units:
|(1)||Rehabilitation Unit 1 (Assessment & Supervision);|
|(2)||Rehabilitation Unit 2 (Welfare and Counselling & Supervision);|
|(4)||Industries & Vocational Training Section; and|
|(5)||Psychological Services Section.|
With the establishment of the Rehabilitation Division, we strive to formulate strategies for the long-term development of rehabilitative services for offenders, to strengthen the co-ordination / connection with the relevant statutory prison sentence review boards, and other concerned bodies on rehabilitation matters of offenders, and to identify the gaps and overlaps in existing rehabilitative services for offenders.
