          BY THE

DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONAL
         SERVICES

       2 September 2003
INTRODUCTION

The DCS has identified that correctional facilities in
  order to accommodate the needs of all categories
  of correctional clients, such as :
 Children in detention
 Youth Correctional Clients
 Women Correctional Clients
 Correctional Clients with disabilities
 Aged Correctional Clients
INTRODUCTION (Cont.)

   Correctional Clients with Mental Illnesses
   First Offender Correctional Clients
   Correctional Clients with long/life sentences
   Correctional Clients who are Foreign Nationals
BACKGROUND
The DCS is obliged to ensure the safety and security
  of the public and to create an environment of
  human dignity as part of rehabilitation.
This view point is based on the following :
 Operating secure, safe and orderly correctional
  centres
 Security classification for rehabilitation
 Safety and health of correctional clients
 Disciplinary procedures applicable in correctional
  centres
BACKGROUND (CONT.)
   The existing prison facilities consist of a range of
    facilities built over an extended period of time which
    do not meet the requirements for safe and secure
    custody and the need for rehabilitation programmes
   The DCS views a bigger challenge in addressing the
    needs of all categories of correctional clients as
    identified previously
   The Department has identified that facilities are
    critical in creating an enabling environment for
    rehabilitation.
BACKGROUND (CONT.)

   The concept of the New Generation Prisons is
    based on the needs driven planning of
    accommodation for all categories of correctional
    clients
   This approach will also provide for alignment of
    the facilities with activities such as agriculture,
    workshops, academic and reconciliation with the
    admission policy.
BACKGROUND (CONT.)

   The New Generation facilities are planned to cater
    for medium and low risk correctional client
    categories which constitute the majority of the
    country’s prison population
   These facilities will be strategically situated
    around the country in the areas mostly affected by
    overcrowding and closest to the communities of
    origion of the bulk of the correctional clients.
