Terms of Reference / Guidelines:
The ACT Prison Community Panel considered the general philosophy that would underpin the operation of an ACT correctional facility. In particular, it considered facilities, programs (including rehabilitation programs) and services that would allow for the safe, secure, humane and just containment of sentenced prisoners and remandees in the new prison for the ACT. The Panel also provided its views on the following issues:
� the general design of the prison;
� monitoring of prison operation;
� the types of prison industry that might operate within the prison;
� the provision of recreational facilities for prisoners and remandees;
� rehabilitation of prisoners and appropriate interventions; and
� community initiatives in providing for continuity of care from within the prison to the general community to aid reintegration by prisoners (such as work release programs).
