Welcome to the Sierra Leone Correctional Services

Transforming Inmates And Reintegrating Them The Society

Latest from the Governor:

The Correctional Service finds itself at the tail end of the criminal Justice Chain: This involves all the activities and actors dealing with policing, prosecution (Police), Judgement (Judiciary) and sanctions (Corrections). Because of the paradigm shift in penal administration in Sierra Leone; moving from Prisons to Corrections, the role of the correctional service should not be limited to imposing the sanctions prescribed by the courts but by designing
and implementing treatment programmes for inmates which, at the end of their terms in the correctional centres, communities would be expecting persons that have been reformed, rehabilitated and ready to conform to the norms of society as they reintegrate.

The ‘Prisons to Corrections’ focal person of UNDP SL - Louise Aaen acknowledged this, after four years of partnership with the SLCS, during which the SLCS has made significant strides towards the implementation of the dictates of standard offender management principles. Louise pointed out that the SLCS has improved in files management, separation of categories, access to clean water and sanitation, and improvement in inmates’ diet.
