Australian Capital Territory

As of 2005, The Australian Capital Territory does not currently have any prisons suitable for housing sentenced prisoners. Currently, sentenced prisoners in the Australian Capital Territory serve their sentences in New South Wales prisons pending the construction of a prison in the ACT due in 2008. The new prison will be found off the Monaro Highway at Hume and will be called the Alexander Maconochie Centre. It is currently under construction, and should be open in 2008.
