Description

These Inspection standards for Aboriginal prisoners have been developed to reflect the prison experience of Aboriginal prisoners, a distinct and significant group in the total prison population. Developed over eight years of inspecting prisons, the Inspection standards for Aboriginal prisoners bring together all previous findings and recommendations for improving outcomes for Aboriginal prisoners.

These Standards add to and further develop the Code of inspection standards for adult custodial services and should be read in the context of that Code. The Standards in this Code will be kept under continuous review and are intended to apply to the management of all Aboriginal prisoners. The performance of individual prisons and the Department of Corrective Services will be benchmarked against these standards by way of regular liaison visits by officers and scheduled formal inspections.

The Standards are broadly grouped into the following five key areas:
