Human resources Civil servants who work in prisons are the driving force behind the modernisation and humanisation of the prison system; they are committed, dedicated, hardworking professionals.
In a prison system whose objective is social reintegration, it is essential to have teams of qualified, highly involved professionals. Success or failure in the task is largely in their hands. That is why it is necessary to make prison an attractive place in which to work.
