More than 4000 prisoners were taken into the Northern Territory's four custodial facilities in the last financial year.
In the same time, almost 1848 offenders were received into the supervision of Community Corrections.
The figures were made public on National Corrections Day which is being held across the NT today, including Katherine.
More than 800 NT Correctional Services men and women are being recognised today for their work to help keep NT communities safer.
These quiet achievers work with many offenders with some of the most challenging and complex needs at the Northern Territory's four custodial facilities and in the community with people on supervision orders.
NT Correctional Services Commissioner Scott McNairn said he was proud to have an opportunity to recognise the hard work, dedication and professionalism of correctional services employees throughout the NT.
"National Corrections Day is an opportunity for employees to come together and pay tribute to colleagues and to have their families join them to share in the day's activities," Mr McNairn said.
National Corrections Day events are scheduled at the four custodial facilities - Darwin Correctional Precinct, the Alice Springs Correctional Centre, the Barkly Work Camp and the Datjala Work Camp.
There are also events at the Community Corrections offices in Alice Springs, Katherine, Wadeye, Nhulunbuy, Tennant Creek, Darwin, Casuarina and Palmerston.
