Landmarks across Queensland lit up blue on 19th January to acknowledge and celebrate the important work of correctional officers.

The theme for this year’s National Corrections Day was wellbeing. Queensland Correctives Services (QCS) says this theme aligns with its commitment to supporting the wellbeing and safety of its officers, those in custody, and the broader community.

“From high-security correctional centres to low custody facilities, remote community corrections offices to work camps which provide much-needed labour and support to communities recovering from natural disasters, QCS officers make Queensland a better, safer place by managing and rehabilitating those who would otherwise offend,” said the Honourable Nikki Boyd, Minister for Fire, Disaster Management and Corrective Services.

Hepatitis Queensland would like to acknowledge the invaluable role Queensland Correctional staff perform.

Working towards our goal of seeing an end to viral hepatitis would not be possible without the hard work and support of corrections staff, who partner with us to provide hepatitis testing and treatment. These initiatives improve health and rehabilitation outcomes, benefitting the individual and wider community.
