Seychelles Prison Service

The Seychelles Prison Service today continues to evolve and progress forward as it reviews its Prison Act and proposes fundamental changes to its operations and as well the regulations which guides us. On 14 February 2017, the President of the Republic of Seychelles, Honorable Danny Faure, at the State of the Nation address added further momentum when announcing that there was a need to reform the prison service.

For this reason the Seychelles Prison Service actively aligned its operations to ‘Nelson Mandela Rules for the Humane Treatment of Prisoners’, and sought further regional and international cooperation. We are proud of the accomplishments to date and recognize that the men and women of the service aim to do more and be better
