Earlier this year, the QCS Academy welcomed officers from the Fiji Corrections Service to observe Queensland training programs.

“We are happy to say that we have learned a lot. The challenges that we go through at home are the same here, and culture plays a part in how we adapt and treat offenders,” says Principal Corrections Officer, Mesulame Tamanitoakula.
