Commissioner's Requirements set out high level requirements in respect of operational matters. They are issued when specificity is required to ensure consistency and/or continuity of correctional practice across the whole prison system, encompassing both publicly and privately managed prisons.
They are developed in consultation with prison management and operators. The procedures set out in the Commissioner's Requirements must be adopted by all staff who are providing correctional services in Victoria.
The observance of these requirements enables a consistency in correctional services delivery across Victoria.
