Promoting community safety through effective management of prisoners and offenders and provision of opportunities for rehabilitation and reparation The overarching purpose of the correctional system is to promote community safety through effective management of prisoners and offenders and to provide opportunities for rehabilitation and reparation. There are 11 public prisons, two private prisons and one transition centre in Victoria. Community Correctional Services (CCS) are delivered through more than 50 locations across the state. Progress towards achieving this objective In 2014–15, the department is reporting progress against this objective using the objective indicators identified below, as well as through its report on output performance located at the end of each output. Outputs Prisoner Supervision and Support Community-based Offender Supervision Objective indicators Escapes from secure perimeter, corrective facilities Percentage of community correction orders completed Escapes from secure perimeter, corrective facilities The objective indicator ‘escapes from secure perimeter, corrective facilities’ includes escapes by prisoners from secure corrective services custody.

The level of escapes from secure perimeter corrective facilities provides an indication of the ability of the system to provide safe and secure containment of prisoners, thereby contributing to community safety. Percentage of community correction orders completed The objective indicator ‘Proportion of community correction orders completed’ measures all orders successfully completed that are managed by CCS. This includes parole, supervised court orders and unsupervised orders.

Unsupervised orders comprise a range of orders that include only a community work condition. The most common unsupervised orders are Community Correction Orders and Fine Default Orders. Parole occurs when a prisoner is placed on supervised conditional release. Data for ‘Percentage of community correction orders completed’ are provided in the table below: Completion of orders (per cent) 2011–12 2012–13 2013–14 2014–15 58.7 63.2 66.4 66.5 Data for this objective indicator are collected quarterly and published on a disaggregated basis for performance reporting purposes.
