Tasmania Prison Service

Contact a prisoner / remandee

When a person is remanded in custody or first comes into prison it may take several days before regular contact can be made with family and friends. The best way for you to contact a prisoner or remandee, before a visit or phone call is arranged, is to write him or her a letter.

There are rules and regulations regarding contact with remandees and prisoners - including visits, phone calls and mail. There are also rules regarding information that the Tasmania Prison Service can and cannot release about specific remandees or prisoners (such as release dates and classification information).
