Strong interest in State’s prison projects

ATTORNEY General Peter Foss says other Australian states are interested in two very successful innovations in WA – work camps and the use of video technology.

Speaking to delegates at the Prison Officers’ Association of Australasia 2000 conference, Mr Foss said the management of WA prisons had greatly improved.

“Work camps are an excellent way for prisoners to make available contribution back into the community and an opportunity for individual prisoners to develop new skills that will help them find work when released,” Mr Foss said.

“Work camps were started in Queensland but have really caught on here.”

He said new prison videolink facilities were proving an essential part of the daily operation of prisons allowing prisoner to appear in court via videolink.
