68 new recruits have joined the Fiji Corrections Service after their Passing Out Parade yesterday.

While speaking at the Passing Out Parade, Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says corrections officers play a very important role in society.

Sayed-Khaiyum says they are an integral part of our ability to ensure that we have a fair, just and prosperous Fiji.

He highlighted that we need to have prison officers who have a lot of compassion, sympathy, being able to use a lot more technology and being able to relate to the prisoners.

The AG adds they have tried to ensure that the corrections service does not become a place where prisoners come and therefore languish in the system.

He further says Fiji had a very high rate of recidivism for a long period of time. Sayed-Khaiyum also emphasized the Government's significant investment in the past years to upgrade and maintain corrections infrastructural facilities to meet international standards and assist with inmate rehabilitation.
