Bandyup Women’s Prison marks 50 years

Bandyup Women’s Prison will mark 50 years of operation tomorrow, in conjunction with National Corrections Day.

The Swan Valley facility first opened its doors to women prisoners in 1970 - in response to overcrowding at Fremantle Prison - and was first called the “Bandyup Training Centre”.

Prison visitors targeted again

A visitors’ car park search at Hakea Prison and the adjacent Melaleuca Remand and Reintegration Facility yesterday netted contraband including cannabis and syringes.

The search was conducted to highlight the work of Corrective Services staff, ahead of tomorrow’s National Corrections Day, (Friday January 17) when staff around the country are recognised for the work they do with prisoners and with offenders managed in the community.
