Brisbane Correctional Centre

Brisbane Correctional Centre is the primary reception centre for newly-sentenced male prisoners in south-east Queensland.

Upon arrival, new prisoners are inducted into the correctional system, have their risks and needs assessed and have an offender management plan formulated to cover the duration of their sentence.

Prisoners are then transferred to suitable correctional centres elsewhere in Queensland to complete their sentence.

Brisbane Correctional Centre also has an operational maximum security unit.
