Pre-promotional Training

Training of the correctional staff of all ranks is of utmost importance not only as a means of ensuring that the tasks undertaken by the West Bengal Correctional Services are carried out as efficiently as possible but also for giving confidence and imparting a sense of dignity and self-respect to staff. The present day aim of the correctional administration is reclamation of the offenders so that they may be returned to society as a reformed person, ready to take their share in its affair. Hence, there, has to be a platform where all the information pertaining to the role of a correctional home can be shared and experiences of others can be used to enrich the knowledge and the skill of personnel of the correctional home who are due for promotion so that they are able to fulfill the objectives laid out in the
