​Berrima Correctional Centre

The recommissioning of Berrima Correctional Centre took place in September 2016, with the 75-bed minimum male security centre ​offering vocational training to inmates, in order to aid rehabilitation and lower recidivism​ rates. 

Selected inmates will undertake supervised work outside the prison for the Wingecarribee Shire Council and not-for-profit groups. 

Programs and accredited training will be available to all the male minimum-security inmates at Berrima. Inmates will be able to gain their trade tickets in working a forklift, plant equipment and other tools, making them job ready and a better contribution to the community.

The centre was closed in 2011 due to a drop in prisoner numbers and was reopened to cater for the increased inmate population.
