A Critical Role

The correctional officer is vital to fulfilling the mission of the British Columbia Corrections Branch, Adult Custody Division. With ten provincial correctional centres across British Columbia, our correctional officers can work in a variety of settings. Whatever you’re looking for, you might just find it with BC Corrections.

As the primary contact for inmates, the correctional officer works directly with offenders. This gives the correctional officer in-depth knowledge of an inmate’s personality and behavior—vital to maintaining the security of the institution. At the same time, this knowledge supports and assists in planning inmate’s successful reintegration into society

Privilege & responsibility of a peace officer

Provincial correctional officers are peace officers. They possess a belief in the values of the BC Public Service, the flexibility and desire to work within a team, the ability to thrive in a demanding work environment, and, most importantly, the motivation to work with offenders.
