Highlights of Adult Offender Service in 2022

  • Enhance Patriotism Program
    Loving the motherland and loving Macao is the core value of the whole community in Macao. This year, we launch the “Enhance Patriotism Program”, which consist a series of patriotic education such as seminars and activities for our offenders and youths. Through micro films, seminars, activities and site visits, we aim to enhance the sense of the adult and juvenile offenders’ national identity with our country, and build up their love for motherland and abiding the law. The program includes four chapters: “Loving the Motherland”, “Love our country, Abide the Law”, “Love Macao” and “National Development Workshop”.
     

  • Cross-regional Reintegration Service in Greater Bay Area
    In order to further improve the rehabilitation service in Macao and provide more support for rehabilitated persons, the Social Welfare Bureau cooperates with the relevant agencies from Hong Kong and Guangdong Province to provide Cross-regional Reintegration Service in Greater Bay Area for Macao residents serving their sentences in Hong Kong and Guangdong Province, so that they can reintegrate to the society smoothly once when they are released and return to their place of origin, in which will be beneficial for reoffending prevention.
    Program includes:Macao Resident Support Program (Guangdong), Macao Resident Support Program (Hong Kong).​
     
     

  • Career Development Programs
    Employment is an important prerequisite for rehabilitated offenders to reintegrate into society. The Social Welfare Bureau (IAS) is committed to expanding and improving the employment support services for ex-offenders and ensuring their successful employment. The career development programs include the Supportive Employer Network, Employment Placement Plan for Pre-release Prisoners, and Employment Placement Plan for Housed Juveniles.
     
       

  • Virtual Job Hunting Program
    To help pre-release prisoners acquire information on job opportunities more conveniently, the IAS has launched the Virtual Job Hunting Program featuring video introductions of workplaces. By showing the actual work environments and duties of various posts, it helps pre-release prisoners choose their preferred jobs more easily and effectively.
     
     
       

  • Correctional Courses for Rehabilitated Offenders
    Systematic correctional courses and activities are available according to the needs of the rehabilitated persons and the types of crimes committed. Courses including: personal growth, legal education, civic education, treatment courses, skills training, and participation in social services. These aim to raise offenders’ awareness of caring for the community and law abiding, establishing a positive lifestyle.
     
     
       

  • Family Beyond the Wall Project
    A proactive family project, collaborating with Correction Services Bureau and YMCA, we provide family support for offenders when they are sentenced in the prison or Youth Correction Institution within Macao, Guangdong Province and Hong Kong. We aim to help those family members (Macao residents) to resolve problems in advance which benefit a better family reintegration for offenders.
