Corrective Services NSW
|Our Statement of Purpose - Corrective Services NSW delivers professional correctional services to reduce re-offending and enhance community safety.|
Welcome to Corrective Services NSW
We place great emphasis on diversionary programs with the effect that less people come into custody. Resources have been shifted from correctional centres out into the community where a growing number of offenders are serving Intensive Correction Orders. Under these orders offenders are supervised and monitored in the community by CSNSW staff. They face strict curfews, random alcohol and drug tests, and must participate in rehabilitation programs to address their offending behaviour as well as complete 32 hours of community work each month.

Corrective Services NSW Restructure
Corrective Services NSW (CSNSW) is undergoing a major restructure. An independent review was commissioned, at the direction of the Minister by the Director General of the Department of Attorney General and Justice (DAG&J) in consultation with the Commissioner of CSNSW, as part of the NSW Government’s Program Prioritisation Review.
The review was tasked to identify the most appropriate organisational management structure to meet the Government’s policy objectives, including the reduction of reoffending.
The following documents provide the background to the review, its recommendations and the future direction of CSNSW.
Mobile Phone Jamming Trial at Lithgow Correctional Centre set to start in July
- Corrective Services NSW, as part of the Australian Corrective Services Administrators' Council, is set to start a 12 month mobile phone jamming trial at Lithgow Correctional Centre.
- It will be conducted on behalf of corrections jurisdictions across Australia and will examine how the jamming technology can be best used to combat illicit mobile phone possession and use inside gaols.
- CSNSW will be working to ensure the jamming technology works effectively inside without interfering with mobile phone use outside the correctional centre.
