Corrections, Policing and Public Safety

Corrections and Policing

The Ministry of Corrections, Policing and Public Safety is responsible for:

  • overseeing Saskatchewan's correctional system and facilities; and
  • providing guidance and support to Saskatchewan's municipal police services.

The Custody, Supervision and Rehabilitation Services (CSRS) Division is responsible for the implementation and operation of adult and youth offender services in Saskatchewan as defined by The Correctional Services Act and the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA). These services include: assistance to the courts in their pre-trial or pre-sentence decision making; the provision of a range of custody, supervision and program services for persons sentenced or remanded by the courts; and the development and provision of a wide range of other correctional programs and services that promote safe and secure communities.

CSRS staff work with partners and stakeholders to provide effective services for adults and youth in conflict with the law with the goal of reducing re-offending and improving the ability of offenders to reintegrate into their communities.

The Policing and Community Safety Division is mandated to help keep communities safe and maintain public order and safety in Saskatchewan by ensuring that effective policing and private security programs uphold the rule of law and protect the rights of individuals. The ministry also works closely with the RCMP to support law enforcement activity in rural Saskatchewan.
