Lotus Glen Correctional Centre

Location: Mareeba

Thiess Pty Ltd

 

February 2010  – NOVEMBER 2012

The Lotus Glen Correctional Centre, located 25 kilometres south of Mareeba, accommodates high and low security prisoners and provides a remand and reception function north of Innisfail. The centre services the Cape York Region including Cairns, isolated communities and Torres Strait Islands.
 
The centre has a current total capacity of 498 (398 within the secure unit and 100 at the centre's farm).


Redevelopment

Construction started at the centre in early 2010, since then there have been significant milestones reached. The first stage included a new perimeter fence, gatehouse, medical centre and visitor processing block. The new kitchen and officer's mess was commissioned in April 2011. This commissioning included the offer of TAFE accredited training for all kitchen Trade Instructors to better facilitate prisoner learning in the new kitchen. The new accommodation (Secure North) will be used to house most Lotus Glen prisoners while the older units are refurbished for the next twelve months. An additional 24 beds at the Lotus Glen farm has also been completed, ensuring an increased capacity to low custody options for prisoners.
 
The centre refurbishment is due to finish around July 2012. At the end of this process, Lotus Glen will move from a capacity of 398 to approximately 700 secure beds and 100 to 125 at the farm.
