A Prison Most Would Like to Break Into!
The purpose is to better reflect life in a community for low-risk offenders, with hopes that it will help rehabilitate the convicted.
The term, Karreenga, means "to grow" in a local dialect, and that is the main goal of this facility.
The prison is set to house medium security male prisoners in cottage-style rooms that have heaters and cooking facilities. Also tennis courts and a bakery stocked with even lamb!
The bakery would produce bread, pastries and pies and supplied to the prison system. Only sentenced prisoners will be sent to Karreenga.
The Box Hill Institute will deliver a range of education programs. Prisoners are expected to work across a range of jobs including ground maintenance and cleaning.
There’s no lax on the security aspect with three layers, a lighting system and alarms. Still it's way better than what some of us have to deal with in the real world.
