Rwanda Correctional Service (RCS)
Rwanda Correctional Service (RCS) was the
result of merging the former National Prisons Service and the Executive
Secretariat of National Committee of Community Services as an alternative
penalty to imprisonment.
RCS has transformed into an institution that
rehabilitates inmates into more responsible citizens upon release .We have
increasingly become income generating rather than a fund consuming body.
Much effort was put in designing more
appropriate correctional regimes along with promotion of justice that align
with international standards, proper coordination with other justice sector
institutions while preparing for effective reintegration.
The vision of RCS is
to implement the general policy and strategies for effective management of
inmates and tigistes by ensuring respect for human rights.
We are part of the United Nations Peace Keeping in
Corrections, subscribe to the International Prison/Corrections Management and are
members to the IPCA, ACSA and EAC Prisons and Corrections Forum.
