During aftercare, Singapore Prison Service (SPS) continues to build on the knowledge and skills that inmates have gained in prisons, through a structured and gradual reintegration process in the community. Inmates may be emplaced as supervisees on Community-Based Programmes (CBP), where they reside at their homes or at approved residential facilities such as Halfway Houses.
Eligible inmates are assessed for CBP towards the tail-end of their sentences. SPS makes a holistic assessment of the inmates’ suitability for CBP, taking into consideration their latest rehabilitation progress, general conduct and reintegration plans. If your loved ones are assessed suitable for CBP, the next-of-kin or person appointed will be informed in due course.
Mandatory supervision, counselling and casework sessions are also extended to supervisees who require additional support.
Reintegration Officers are uniformed SPS staff that support supervisees in the community, by ensuring their compliance to supervision conditions. They also work closely with community partners and provide case management to the supervisees and ex-offenders under their charge.
All CBP inmates will be assigned to Reintegration Officers during their programme. Inmates who are assessed to require more intervention may also be assigned to Correctional Rehabilitation Specialists, who will conduct mandatory counselling during their CBP.
Correctional Rehabilitation Specialists
Correctional Rehabilitation Specialists who are civilian staff, provide case management services to supervisees in the community. Case management services include assessments, counselling, advocacy, mediation, and making referrals.
