Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre

Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre (AGCC) is the current remand centre for south-east Queensland. The function of the remand centre is to hold alleged offenders in custody by court order, while awaiting or attending a criminal trial.

AGCC operations are focused on rehabilitating prisoners by providing offender development programs and support, as well as meaningful activity, including prison industries, to help them develop useful life and work skills to assist with their successful reintegration to the community on release.

The centre transitioned from private operations to QCS operations on 1 July 2020. The change to operations does not impact standard visiting times or processes; however, all visitors must register their fingerprint upon first visit to the centre. This is standard practice at all QCS correctional centres.

To register your fingerprint for biometrics, contact the visits processing officers at AGCC on (07) 3212 0472 to organise a suitable time.

For more information about the changes to visitor requirements at AGCC, read the Visitor Information – Access Requirements factsheet.
