Alexander Maconochie Centre—remandees(Question No 212)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 23 April 2021:

(1) How many recorded incidents involving threats/coercion/blackmail to remandees from sentenced detainees were there at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC) in the years (a) 2018, (b) 2019, (c) 2020 and (d) 2021 year to date.

(2) How many recorded incidents of sentenced detainees perpetrating acts of violence ending in injury against remandees were there at the AMC in years (a) 2018, (b) 2019, (c) 2020 and (d) 2021 year to date.

(3) How many recorded incidents of sentenced detainees perpetrating acts of violence ending in hospitalisation against remandees were there at the AMC in years (a) 2018, (b) 2019, (c) 2020 and (d) 2021 year to date.

(4) Are there any differences in programs and services offered to remandees in contrast to those offered to sentenced detainees; if so, what are these.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) To determine how many recorded incidents involved threats, coercion or blackmail to remanded detainees from sentenced detainees would require a considerable administrative undertaking to view each incident report individually and therefore cannot be provided.

(2) To determine how many recorded acts of violence perpetrated by sentenced detainees ending in injury to remanded detainees would require a considerable administrative undertaking to view each incident report individually and therefore cannot be provided.

(3) To determine how many recorded acts of violence perpetrated by sentenced detainees ending in hospitalisation to remanded detainees would require a considerable administrative undertaking to view each incident report individually and therefore cannot be provided.

(4) Remanded detainees have access to the same general programs and wellbeing programs as sentenced detainees. They are not able to access criminogenic programs (i.e. offence specific programs) which target an offender’s criminogenic risk factors, as they have not yet been convicted of an offence.
