Recent developments in the Ghana Prisons Service are indicative that the Service is not left out of the wind of PPP. As a security and also a social service agency, it is not only tasked with the responsibility of ensuring the safe custody of prison inmates but also to see to their social and economic fortunes by reforming and rehabilitating them through moral and skills training. This is to make them socially fit and economically independent so they could contribute their quota for national development.
The Service’s response to the PPP concept has resulted in new partnerships with the introduction of additional skills training and income generation projects. These include the Havilak Straw Basket Weaving, commercial poultry production and Bamboo treatment into biodegradable products.
