 About The GEO Group Australia

We are the country's leading provider of outsourced correctional services, operating in NSW and VIC. Our goal is to deliver better corrections and in doing so, create safer communities.

We measure our success in delivering ‘better corrections’ in two ways: against our objective of being Australia’s best provider of correctional services, as well as our ability to make these services better over time through innovation and continual improvement.

We measure our success in delivering ‘safer communities’ through our ability to successfully reintegrate the prisoners we release, with corresponding reductions in their rate of re-offending.

To reduce re-offending we apply the GEO Continuum of Care:

  • We work not only in our correctional centres but continue our services out into the community to support our prisoners after release; We work not only with our prisoners but also with those critical to their rehabilitation and reintegration such as families, social networks and other service providers; and
  • We work not only during our prisoners’ sentences but also afterwards as they leave the correctional system and return fully to their communities.
  • Our five values which deliver Better Corrections, Safer Communities are:

Integrity
Respect
Accountability
Agile
Innovative
