In response to COVID-19 we made changes to the way we provide oversight of adult and youth custodial services.
During the pandemic we will monitor the planning and response to COVID-19 by agencies that deliver custodial services.
This may require visits and/or inspections of individual custodial centres.
The Official Visitor Program has continued to operate, although necessary adjustments were initially made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic so that Official Visitors could safely provide support to inmates and detainees. A dedicated mail address continues to operate to allow inmates and detainees access the Official Visitor Program directly.
Inmates and young people can confidentially write to:
The Inspector of Custodial Services
Official Visitor Program
PO Box R1769
ROYAL EXCHANGE NSW 1225
Members of the public can contact email@example.com to enquire about how an Official Visitor may be able to assist a person in custody.
