Guiding Principles for Corrections in Australia

The Guiding Principles for Corrections in Australia constitute outcomes or goals to be achieved by correctional services, rather than a set of absolute standards or laws to be enforced.

The guidelines represent a statement of national intent, around which each Australian State and Territory jurisdiction must continue to develop its own range of relevant legislative, policy and performance standards that can be expected to be amended from time to time to reflect 'best practice' and community demands at the state and territory level.
