Goulburn Correctional Complex

Background

Goulburn Correctional Complex consists of two separate correctional centres, Goulburn Correctional Centre (Goulburn CC) and the High Risk Management Correctional Centre (HRMCC). 

The maximum security area of Goulburn CC opened in 1884, making it one of the oldest correctional centres operating in NSW. The HRMCC was purpose-built to hold inmates considered to require the highest level of security and opened in 2001. 

Where we inspected

We inspected the Goulburn Correctional Complex in March 2021. Goulburn CC holds male inmates and has maximum and minimum security areas. HRMCC holds sentenced and unsentenced inmates with AA or A1 security classifications and/or a security designation. For this reason, it is known colloquially as ‘supermax’.

Recommendations

The Inspector made 36 recommendations. These include systemic and facility specific improvements in:

  • conditions and treatment of inmates
  • staffing and custodial support and procedures
  • access to health and services for inmates
  • custodial infrastructure
