The Fiji Corrections has allocated $24.2 million for the recruitment of various Correctional officers in various facilities throughout the country.

The first batch of 33 additional correctional officer positions will be recruited to operate the new Lautoka facilities.

The upgrade of the Lautoka remand centre is expected to be completed by the end of this year and $500,000 has been allocated to complete the project.

$200,000 has been set aside to fund the installation of complete CCTV cameras at all commercial centres in Fiji.

$150,000 has been allocated to conduct a structural assessment of the main cell block of the old Suva Prison to determine whether the structure can be restored and listed as a national heritage site.

A budget of $138,000 has been allocated for the renovation and extension of the Fiji Juvenile Rehabilitation & Development Centre. These structural improvements will improve living conditions at the Centre and provide a more conducive environment for the rehabilitation of juveniles.

The budget for the Fiji Corrections Service in 2017/2018 is $38.7 million.
