Acacia Prison Expansion

By October 4, 2012 No Comments

Doric Contractors have selected WebFM’s OMTrak system to support the delivery of a $90M expansion project to deliver 387 new beds and supporting facilities.

Acacia Prison is the only privately-managed prison in Western Australia. The prison is owned by the Department of Corrective Services which contracts management of the prison to an external service provider – Serco.

Acacia’s open-plan, campus-style design means prisoners can move around within the complex fairly freely. Prisoners use ‘smart card’ technology to move within the prison, access their bank accounts and buy goods from the canteen.

Acacia’s focus is on rehabilitation and it has a number of industries prisoners can work in including metal work and wood work.
