Sodexo picked for new prison

The state government has selected private company Sodexo as preferred operator of its new women’s prison, adding to a string of big contract wins in Western Australia by the global facilities management group.

Sodexo has been chosen to run the 256-bed Women’s Remand and Reintegration Facility, which is currently being built on the grounds of Hakea Prison at a cost of $24.6 million.

It would be the third privately operated prison in WA, in addition to Acacia and Wandoo, which are run by UK-based company Serco.

Great to see that our Governments continue to give all of our local opportunities away overseas companies!! Wonder where the profits will be invested?

Incarceration should not be privatised, if the aim is for profit there is no way that the outcomes will be measured against successful prisoner rehabilitation. This is nothing more than corporate Slavery in disguise
