With the implementation of the new organisational and salary structure in 2010, the NCS Mission has been further strengthened. Further, the new organizational structure is allowing the NCS to compete with other reputable organizations in the recruitment and retention of qualified and experienced professional staff. This will enable us to much more deliberately focus on achieving quality public safety results through the Offender Risk Management Correctional Strategy.
The new organisational structure will also allow the NCS to provide effective correctional services in a fiscally responsible manner through three levels of management: National, Regional, and Institutional operations.
National Headquarter Management level:
Provides support to the Commissioner General and the Executive Committee and delivers services to all NCS operations such as: correctional operations; international protocol; public and parliamentary relations; human resource and financial management; performance assurance; legal support; health services and planning and research.
Regional Command Management Headquarters
Provides management and administrative support to National Headquarters by monitoring the delivery of programmes and services; developing regional policies; developing plans and programmes for performance measurement; providing human resources and financial management support; providing logistical support; managing health services to offenders and providing information to local media, the public and stakeholders. The regions are also responsible for providing direction and supervision over local operations.
Institutional Management level
Besides the NCS Training College, the NCS manages 13 institutions for both men and women. Of the 13 institutions, 2 are Open Farms, 3 are maximum security facilities, while the rest are medium and minimum security facilities. The NCS also administers post-sentence supervision of offenders who have been released on parole and monitors those offenders who have been sentenced to Community Service. This service comprises presently of court based Community Service Order offices in 2 regions; namely, The North Eastern and North Western regions.
