Monitoring places of detention
We visit places where people are detained to check their treatment and conditions.
These places include:
- secure units in health and disability facilities
- immigration detention centres
- child care and protection residences
- youth justice residences
- court cells.
The Ombudsman then makes recommendations to these places to improve the conditions of detention and detainee treatment.
We have more information about this work in multiple languages and accessible formats.
The Ombudsman has provided agencies responsible for places of detention with a set of principles to guide them during the COVID-19 pandemic.
