Karnet has a long history of offering prisoners meaningful training, rehabilitation and preparation for end of sentence release. It operates as a working farm and makes a significant contribution to the food supply chain for the entire prison system. Some Karnet prisoners also undertake valuable community work which assists in their reintegration and preparation for release.
During the inspection, we found that most prisoners were settled, engaged and reasonably happy to be at Karnet. These are key pre-conditions necessary to create an environment that is productive and supports the potential for prisoner rehabilitation.
