Acacia Prison

Acacia Prison is one of 2 privately-managed prisons in Western Australia. The prison is owned by the Department of Corrective Services which contracts management of the prison to an external service provider - Serco.

Acacia's open-plan, campus-style design means prisoners can move around within the complex fairly freely. Prisoners use 'smart card' technology to move within the prison, access their bank accounts and buy goods from the canteen.

Acacia's focus is on rehabilitation and it has a number of industries prisoners can work in including metal work and wood work.
