Beechworth Correctional Centre
|Managed by||Corrections Victoria|
Accommodation in the prison is made up of several self-catered and fully catered units. Prisoners in self-catered units are given a weekly budget (currently $27.00) to buy groceries and cook their own meals.
Like other minimum security prisons, the Beechworth Correctional Centre has a zero tolerance policy on drugs. Any prisoner who tests positive for drugs is moved into a punishment cell and moved to a higher security prison.
