Publicity Activities for Offender Rehabilitation in 2018-19

Since 1999, the Correctional Services Department (CSD) has organised a series of publicity and public education activities to appeal for public acceptance of and community support for rehabilitated offenders. The community’s response to CSD’s publicity campaign has been encouraging. The public is increasingly aware of the need for collaborative efforts to facilitate offender rehabilitation. Many community organisations, employers and merchant / trade associations have expressed interest in co-operating with CSD in pursuing projects to facilitate offenders’ re-integration into the community. The major activities and programmes organised in recent years include-

  1. TV and radio Announcements in the Public Interest (APIs) appealing for community support for rehabilitated offenders;
  2. Competitions displaying the talents of persons in custody such as lyrics and songs competition and calligraphy competition etc;
  3. TV docu-drama "The Road Back" based on the stories of persons in custody and rehabilitated offenders as well as TV drama series "Tomorrow is Another Day" with CSD’s work as the theme;
  4. TV variety shows such as "Support Offender Rehabilitation for a Safer and More Inclusive Society";
  5. Rehabilitation Pioneer Project launched in September 2008, to disseminate to the youth the messages of leading a law abiding and drug-free life as well as supporting offender rehabilitation through a series of community education activities;
  6. District-based publicity activities co-organised with District Fight Crime Committees;
