Answers to questions

Alexander Maconochie Centre—incidents (Question No 428)

Mr Wall asked the Minister for Justice, upon notice, on 2 June 2015:

What is the total number of (a) emergency code calls made, (b) assaults on correctional officers and (c) prisoner behavioural breaches recorded, at the Alexander Maconochie Centre for (i) 1 January to 31 March 2014, (ii) 1 April to 30 June 2014, (iii) 1 July to 30 September 2014, (iv) 1 October to 31 December 2014, (v) 1 January to 31 March 2015.

Mr Rattenbury: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(a) Emergency Code Calls

Information on emergency code calls for the 2013-2014 financial year was provided in response to a question, asked by Mr Brendan Smyth MLA, which was taken on notice on 26 June 2014 during the 2014-2015 Select Committee on Estimates public hearings. That response is attached for your consideration.

Further to this, data relating to the final quarter of the 2014-2015 financial year has been included below to provide a full financial year.

Table 1 2014-15 Financial Year - by quarter Black Blue Brown Grey Pink Purple White Yellow Green Red Total July to Sept 2014 0 2 0 0 8 8 0 0 0 43 61 October to December 2014 0 3 0 1 8 10 0 0 0 20 42 January to March 2015 0 5 0 1 12 9 0 0 1 29 57 April to June 2015 0 9 0 0 9 9 0 0 0 30 57 Total 0 19 0 2 37 36 0 0 1 122 217

It should be noted that the instance of a code being called does not necessarily equate to an incident occurring; it can mean that a situation has arisen where there is a risk of an incident. Conversely, an incident may occur and be dealt with without a code being called.

(b) Assaults on Correctional Officers

ACT Corrective Services report on the number and nature of assaults within the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC) as part of the Report on Government Services (RoGS) annual cycle.

ACT Corrective Services applies the counting rules used for the preparation of RoGS when preparing statistics of this nature. The rules for counting prisoner related assaults on staff places them in the following general reportable categories:
