The Fiji Corrections Centre (FCS) has stepped up on their rehabilitation programme to help reduce Fijian prison population and prevent offenders from going back to jail.

The Service has introduced a month-long foot drill rehabilitation course to ins till discipline among inmates.

This includes those who are about to be released from prison after completing their sentence.

Sixty-five inmates who had been part of the course graduated yesterday at the Suva Corrections Centre.

Service Central Eastern Division supervisor Sakiusa Veiwili said the course was conducted under four phases.

“The first phase deals with discipline and spiritual enhancement, phase two on offending behaviours, phase three on skills training and the phase four on job placements,” Superintendent Veiwili said.

“There are three detachments altogether that passed out. Detachment number one consisted of Phase One inmates and these are the ones who have completed the first phase of our rehab framework.

“The second detachment consisted of those who have completed the second phase and the third detachment was those who are about to be discharged and ready for re-integration back into the community.”

He said the Service considered the course as a way of instilling discipline to inmates.

“We always want them to be disciplined while in prison because that will assist us in a lot of things, especially in supervising and controlling them and instilling in them a sense of obedience and compliance to instructions.”

He said they had noted changes in inmates who were chosen for the course.
