Roebourne inmates given opportunity to work for the community

Date posted: 14 March 2012

Low-risk inmates from Roebourne Regional Prison in north-west Western Australia, a facility that manages a high percentage of Aboriginal prisoners, will soon have the opportunity to work on projects for the community. A facility, aimed at rehabilitating offenders by involving them in community work, will be constructed next to, and managed by, the prison.

The project will see 30 low-risk prisoners take part in conservation, maintenance and construction projects, which will also involve adding 30 beds to the prison system. Corrective Services Minister Terry Redman says the new facility will provide a range of benefits.
