Prisons' vision states that "We aspire to be captains in the lives of offenders committed to our custody. We will be instrumental in steering them towards being responsible citizens with the help of their families and the community. We will thus build a secure and exemplary prison system."
The need to harness the support of the community towards the rehabilitation and re-integration of offenders is clearly encapsulated in Prisons' vision statement. The community can play a big role in helping the offenders to be responsible citizens. Prisons engages volunteers in the provision of prison-based programmes and to assist inmates' reintegration back into society.
