The new maximum-security facility offers 220 new beds and created 65 new jobs for the local community. The facility houses educational and industrial facilities to provide skill-based rehabilitation for prisoners during incarceration. In total, 13 new buildings have been constructed alongside the part heritage listed existing Medium & Minimum Security Centre.
