Custodial Operations Practice Directives

Queensland Corrective Services maintain safe and secure facilities for in excess of 7000 prisoners, staff and visitors in a complex and challenging environment. This environment often requires staff to respond to both critical and non-critical situations quickly, confidently and professionally. It is imperative that our response to operational matters is underpinned by a contemporary procedural framework, which details the legislative and agency requirements to ensure the safety and security of our corrective services facilities and our staff.

The Custodial Operations Practice Directives provide a consistent framework to direct staff when undertaking their duties throughout a prisoner's custodial episode. The Practice Directives have been assembled into thematic categories and focus on identifying specific responsibilities and accountabilities through the use of process maps and clear accountability standards.

The thematic categories are displayed below - click on any button to see the Practice Directives that relate to that category:
