Queensland Corrective Services Commission was established on 15 December 1988 as an outcome of the Commission of Review into Corrective Services in Queensland, 1988. The Commission took over the functions and responsibilities of the Queensland Prisons Service and the Queensland Probation and Parole Services.

Along with the change to a Commission came a corresponding change of titles to reflect the new direction and responsibilities: prisons became custodial correctional centres; prison officers - custodial correctional officers; probation and parole officers - community correctional officers, and the Parole Board was replaced by a State and five regional Community Corrections Boards.

The Commission was responsible for determining policy in relation to the administration, management and control of corrective services. In addition to prison administration, the Commission had responsibility for all adult corrections functions, including supervision of offenders sentenced to community supervision orders, containing offenders, and ensuring rehabilitation of offenders.

The Commission was headed by a Board of community representatives which was responsible for policy development and performance monitoring. The Commission had a central Directorate and area offices and regional community corrections offices throughout Queensland.

On 1 May 1999 the Commission was replaced by the Corrective Services Department.
