The lack of organized rehabilitative activities for prisoners increases the likelihood that detainees will become repeat offender. While imprisonment remains the central form of punishment in the criminal justice system, our emphasis on correction rather than punishment provides the best option both for inmates and our communities as we encourage rehabilitative programmes which give inmates the best chance of successfully re-entering our community and living independent, productive lives reducing recidivism and increasing community safety. Our prisoners’ rehabilitation programme is not directed only at reforming the character of prisoners. Our focus is preventing reoffending as our methods move from the disciplining of the body to the disciplining of the soul. More than 90% of prisoners return to the community within a few years, that is why it is vitally important how we treat them while they are incarcerated. It would be beneficial to every man, woman and child and harmful to no one, if we provide adequate rehabilitation to those incarcerated to ensure their effective re-entry into the community. Our prisoners’ rehabilitation philosophy hinges solely on crime prevention and sustainable community safety.
