Christmas Message : Commissioner of Corrections

Mrs. Ina Fairweather, Commissioner of Corrections

I am honoured to be leading the Department of Correctional Services at this time and pleased to share with you in this special season of Christmas.

It is the time of year when we celebrate the gift of love and acknowledge the peace, joy and goodwill intended for us. Those from far and near reserve the time to be with family and friends; a wonderful coming together, filled with fun and laughter.

While we celebrate, we are mindful of those among us who are mourning the loss of loved ones and for whom Christmas will never be the same. I therefore extend sincere condolences to members of staff who are grieving at this time and pray that they will find comfort in the treasured memories of those they have lost.

What We Do?

During the post-independence years the prison system in Jamaica was composed of three (3) main entities: the Prisons, the Probation Services and the Approved Schools which functioned separately in the implementation and execution of the correctional functions of the Government.
