ALBERTA ASSOCIATION OF POLICE GOVERNANCE

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PAROLE AND PROBATION IN ALBERTA


Alberta association of police governance

INTRODUCTION TO CSC

  • CSC is one of five agencies within the Department of Public Safety. Our partners include:

  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police

  • National Parole Board

  • Canadian Security Intelligence Service

  • Canada Border Services Agency

  • CSC is responsible for administering sentences of two years or more, as imposed by the Courts.

  • We do not determine guilt or innocence, impose sentences or determine whether an offender is released to the community to serve part of their sentence on parole

  • Our principle goal is PUBLIC SAFETY

  • CSC is responsible for 58 penitentiaries, including mental health facilities, women’s institutions and healing lodges

  • In the Prairie Region, which includes AB, NWT, SK, MB and NW Ontario, there are 13 men’s and 2 women’s institutions

  • CSC also has the following community based facilities:

  • 8 District Offices

  • 71 Parole Offices

  • 16 Community Correctional Centers (halfway houses run by CSC)

  • 175 Community Residential Facilities (halfway houses run by community partners)

MANAGEMENT OF OFFENDERS

  • The majority of people sentenced to federal institutions will eventually return to society

  • CSC’s goal is to ensure that the offender leaving the institution is better able to live as a contributing, law abiding citizen than the person who entered the institution

  • We assist offenders to accomplish this by developing and implementing a comprehensive correctional strategy that consists of programs and therapeutic interventions as well as security and ongoing supervision


Alberta association of police governance

  • The correctional process begins at Intake, which occurs immediately following sentencing and admission to the federal system. It does not end until the expiration of the offender’s sentence

  • By identifying what contributed to the offender’s criminal behaviour, the Case Management Team can develop a strategy to address those areas

  • This strategy is called the Correctional Plan, which forms the blueprint for the offender’s entire sentence
