Community Corrections Work Bans & members bulletin – July 2016 (PDF version)

The PSA understands there are Community Corrections Officers who have been requested to facilitate interviews, phone calls and such for inmates above their caseload allocation.

Community Corrections Officers have unacceptable workloads, with some staff reporting hours in excess of 200 per month.

Whilst the Department has just announced the recruitment of 57 new appointments, of which 33 are Community Corrections Officers, it will be some time before the new staff are fully operational and are able to assist existing employees.

During the interim it is extremely important you do not engage in work that has not been allocated to you and results in an increase to your already onerous workload.

In line with this, the PSA is directing members working as Community Corrections Officers to not facilitate inmate interviews and phone calls that are not in your allocated caseload.

This is in accordance with the following resolution of your PSA Advisory Group:

“That the CCVBAG direct members that they are to no longer place offender’s not on their allocated case load on to the telephone for any purpose, including but not limited to PSR IVs, LSIR/CP IVs, Pre Prelease Interviews”
