Collaboration Between the Government
and the Private Sector

In introducing the PFI (Private Finance Initiative), we actively apply the expertise of a private sector, and strive to increase business efficiency the level of quality. In addition, we respect the humanity of the inmates, and support them in making a smooth transition in their reintegration into society. We also ensure transparency in our administrative services by promoting PR activities.

Harmony with the Local Community

Kakogawa was approved as the Special Zones for Structural Reform. This designation significantly expanded the scope for outsourcing to the private sector. It is expected to increase local employment opportunities, and make effective use of the resources of the local community. In addition, we will strive to contribute to the local community and coexist with them through the revitalization of local businesses by providing work opportunities associated with the facility and by actively participating in events held in the community.
