SPS 2022 Operating Theme:

 "Implementing the Nelson Mandela Rules. A commitment to improve!''

Message from CP

"We seek to continually improve and progress forward.  This has been my drive and motivation since my appointment as head of the Seychelles Prison Service on 22 November 2017.  Since that day and into each year we have been motivated to deliver against targets and objectives.  Our team of dedicated men and women remain committed to seeing that we do become and are regarded as a premier correctional institution.  We are certainly  determined to rehabilitate those who have committed crimes and having been convicted to serve their time positively.  Our ultimate aim where possible is to successfully reintegrate back to society those who fell and succumbed to negative influences.  If we are to reform then this must be our ultimate goal."
