5 Organisational Structures Correctional settings are formally constituted by a series of official norms comprising the principles, rules and guidance relating to the mission; the authority structures that govern that setting; and the tasks and responsibilities of those who work within those settings. These are the key organisational structures that need to be considered in examining what amounts to integrity breaches—deviations from compliance with those norms in some way, and what prospective and retrospective mechanisms are in place to try to promote integrity and deal with any breaches that may occur.

Implicit or explicit in virtually every discussion of inappropriate relationships is some concept of boundary violation—the breach of a notional line between acceptable and unacceptable behaviour within a relationship (Jones 2013; Faulkner and Regehr 2011). We shall see that, frequently, the demarcation between the two is not clearly expressed or well-understood by the parties affected. In other instances, as we have suggested, the intervention of other motives and emotions means that these boundaries are ignored.
