Policy Bulletin

Policy numbers and titles:

Commissioner’s Directive (CD) 568-7 – Incompatible Offenders

Guidelines (GL) 568-7-1 – Management of Incompatible Offenders

Why were the policies changed?

These policies were revised in response to a Board of Investigation, which identified the need for more standardized practices concerning the management of incompatibles.

CD 568-7 was modified to provide clarification and to introduce the newly developed guidelines for managing incompatible offenders.

The new GL 568-7-1 – Management of Incompatible Offenders were developed to enhance the Correctional Service of Canada’s (CSC) existing operational methods in determining the validity and relevance of incompatibilities between offenders.
