Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    The files in this series were top-numbered in 1995 by the Department of Justice Correctional Services Division. The records were transferred to Public Record Office Victoria custody as VPRS 12699 General Correspondence Files, Registry 11 Correctional Services. Refer to the series text for VPRS 12699 for information on how to access the files.

  • Function / Content
    This series consisted of correspondence relating to the delivery of correctional programs in Victoria. It commenced in 1983 with the creation of VA 1063 Office of Corrections. In 1992, the Office of Corrections was abolished and replaced by the Correctional Services Division within VA 3085 Department of Justice. The series is believed to have continued without interruption through this change until the end of 1994. At this time the division began to register its correspondence files as part of the Department's Records and Correspondence Management System (RCMS). Early in 1995 the files in this series were top-numbered into the RCMS system.

    Further information about the content of the series may be found in the series text for VPRS 12699 General Correspondence Files, Registry 11 Correctional Services.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The files in this series were controlled by a computer based records management system known as RMS (Records Management System?). RMS may have been used as the file register. Further research is required.

    Files were allocated an annual single number eg. 83/1, 83/2, 83/3, and so on. The first file number allocated in the series was 83/1. The last number is believed to have been 94/865.
