The White Paper is the principal strategic document aimed at directing the management and service provision of the department over the next twenty years and beyond. Furthermore, this White Paper on Corrections also sets objectives against which the people of South Africa can measure the department’s performance and service delivery. The writing of the White Paper was a protracted, involved and exciting process that, for the first time in the history of the country, elaborated on the work of corrections and the need to view corrections as a responsibility which is not solely that of the Department but also rests squarely on the shoulders of society (Mr LM Mti, Commissioner of Correctional Services, 2005)
