A Department of Justice service agency headed by the Corrections Commissioner, Corrections Victoria manages 60 Community Correctional Services locations across Victoria and 11 public prisons, as well as overseeing two privately operated prisons. Corrections Victoria's mission is to deliver a safe and secure corrections system that actively engages offenders and the community to promote positive behaviour change.
