In October 2010 the Minister for Corrections and Consumer Protection, Nick McKim MP, asked Mr Mick Palmer AO APM to conduct an independent inquiry into the Risdon Prison Complex.
The Inquiry was tasked to investigate, examine and report on matters relating to the design, construction and operation of the Risdon Prison Complex (RPC).
The Report of the Risdon Prison Complex Inquiry was delivered to Minister McKim on 30 March 2011.
In June 2011 an edited version of the Report was publicly released. That version of the Report was edited to remove, and temporarily withhold, those findings, recommendations and comments that had the potential to compromise the safety and security of the Risdon Prison Complex until the matters had been satisfactorily dealt with. All security recommendations have now been implemented.
