Every year National Corrections Day recognises the tough work Non-Custodial staff do in our prisons.
The current pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for members working in non-custodial roles with Corrective Services NSW and your professionalism has helped keep COVID-19 out of the state’s prisons.
Our members’ exemplary work has been done against a bed reform process that is adding stress to an already difficult working environment.
This year the PSA/CPSU NSW and Corrective Services NSW have also worked together to address the mental health needs of prison staff throughout the state.
Our prisons play a vital role in protecting the people of NSW and are, in many cases, the lifeblood of regional communities. National Corrections Day is a great chance to acknowledge the hard-working men and women who run them.
Every member should be congratulated and rightly proud of the work they have done in the face of these challenges. You provide a critical service to the state, even if it’s not always as visible to the community as your colleagues in other emergency services.
