Services for Offenders

INTRODUCTION

 

Effective rehabilitation services for offenders require the incorporation of specially designed treatment programmes to guide offenders onto the right track, prevent them from committing crime again, and assist them to start afresh so that they can become not only law-abiding citizens but also contributing members of society.


OBJECTIVES

 

The overall objective of the services for offenders is to help them reintegrate into the community as law-abiding citizens. This is achieved through both community-based and residential services, adopting social work approaches. It is hoped that through proper supervision, counselling, academic, prevocational and social skills training, the offenders can be equipped with the necessary skills to deal with life demands.
