About us

Corrections Victoria's purpose is to deliver an effective corrections system for a safe community. Community Correctional Services (CCS), is overseen by Corrections Victoria, a division of the Department of Justice and Regulation. CCS is responsible for the management and supervision of prisoners on parole, clients under post sentence supervision and court orders.

CCS is currently experiencing rapid growth in the offender population. In response to this, Corrections Victoria will embed evidence based practice across all areas of our work and target responses to the areas that will allow the greatest impacts to be made. This approach will contribute to a safer community and strengthen CCS for the future.

CCS will soon transition to a new structure divided into four best practice streams including: Court Practice, Parole and Specialist Practice, Practice Standards and Community Work and Partnerships, each with its own dedicated function.

  • experience and knowledge of best practice case management frameworks, including the provision of needs assessment in a human services context
  • an understanding and capability in leading and developing a team responsible for operational service delivery
