Message for the Staff

Prisons, J&K

As we are stepping into another promising year I would take this opportunity to compliment my staff for their efforts, energy, resilience and commitment towards their work.

The year that passed has been satisfying as far as our targets and achievements are concerned. We have been able to maintain high standards of work, security and discipline in Prisons located throughout the entire State. Pertinent to mention here that we have been able to run programmes for the reformation and rehabilitation of offenders due to which scores of inmates have been benefited. We have been able to promote various ranks of the Prison Staff to next higher ranks, strengthen the facilities within the prisons and develop the capacities of our Staff in Prison management. However, there is a great scope for further advancement in all areas of our intervention.

In 2016 we aim to expand our reformatory and rehabilitative programmes and overcome the challenges we face in rendering quality correctional service. We aspire to recruit more executive staff in order to overcome the challenges we face due to shortage of Staff and train the existing staff in the sphere of corrections so that we can reach the National Standards. Adoption of modern technology and latest trends in Correctional Services should be on top of our Agenda during the New Year 2016. Need of the hour is to make optimum utilization of the resources available to us. We as team members should be committed to setting goals and achieving results that make a difference when it comes to Prison management & Reformation of offenders.

Last but not the least, I convey my best wishes and warm regards to the Prison Staff and their families for a Happy and Prosperous New Year. I am sure, the Department would make every effort to live up to the expectations of Society by bracing itself to handle forthcoming challenges with hard work, fortitude and courage.

Happy New Year!
