What our students are saying

Kelly Fox

"As a Case Management Coordinator, I am tasked with informing prisoners of their rehabilitation program requirements as a part of their individualised plan. I field questions from prisoners on a daily basis regarding SA Police, prosecutions, court, sentencing, programs, home detention and parole among other things. A holistic understanding of the criminal justice system is very important in order to give prisoners accurate information as they inevitably interact with each agency within the system."
