Society’s Guardians

Since the earliest days of modern Hong Kong, the prison service has played a vital role at the core of society. While the stone walls of Victoria Prison are more than 150 years old, the Correctional Services Department is one of the most modern and progressive penal services in Hong Kong, if not the world. The book, which was printed in 1999, covers 23 institutions staffed by more than 7,000 professional who stress the ultimate rehabilitation of offenders back within society.
