Greenough Regional Prison

Greenough Regional Prison manages prisoners from throughout the midwest region, extending from Exmouth in the north to Moora in the south, and east as far as Wiluna.

Face-to-face social visits to prisons in the Perth and Peel regions and the Banksia Hill Detention Centre have resumed from Sunday, 14 February 2021. Bookings for all facilities are now open.

We thank you for your patience as we work to ensure all people in custody are given the opportunity to see their family, friends and support networks.

Greenough's focus is on prison industries and produces around 5000 meals and handles around 10,000 kilograms of laundry per week.

Visitors may be searched

Visitors may be searched when they enter prison grounds. Tough new penalties for trafficking contraband to apply from 27 June 2020.

This includes the use of drug detection dogs which are used to detect prohibited items and substances. Searches include visitors' cars in the prison car park.

Handheld devices such as metal detectors will be used to ensure that visitors are not attempting to smuggle contraband inside the prison.

The Superintendent is authorised to examine any article in the visitor’s possession, including items of clothing. Where items of clothing are required to be removed for examination, prison officers of the same sex as the visitor will perform the search, or where the visitor is a child it will be a female officer.
