Welcome to the refurbished website of West Bengal Correctional Services. In West Bengal, we are engaged in transforming our erstwhile prisons into true correctional homes. Some vital policy decisions have been taken regarding innovative reformation programmes by involving civil society organizations in the affairs of the homes.

Crime is the outcome of deviant behaviour. It may be the result of strong provocation, may be committed on the spur of the moment, may even be committed unwillingly. Whatever be the reason, we at the correctional set up are concerned with three things: Safety of the society at large which warrants incarceration of the alleged offenders; safety and security of those incarcerated which calls for appropriate segregation and facilities and correctional measures including effective skill upgradation and inspiring self-worth of the inmates. We are constantly endeavouring to achieve all the three goals. The new look website is another way of reaching out to the community to experience the world of correctional homes and to join hands to make reformation in correctional homes a reality. Your suggestions on improving the website on an all matters relating to correctional services in the State are welcomed.
