RON Barwick Minimum Security Prison in Tasmania is seeking a replacement video surveillance solution.

The tender is for the supply and installation of a new CCTV system at the Ron Barwick Minimum Security Prison, which is located at the Risdon Site near Hobart. Works will include the installation and commissioning of structured cabling for network, CCTV cameras and network video recorders.

In 1974, a low security unit, later called the Ron Barwick Medium Security Prison, was opened at Risdon Prison in Hobart. When first opened, the unit accommodated 120 prisoners. By 1981, declining numbers resulted in closure of the unit. In 2007, the facility was reopened as a minimum security centre.

Tender closes on June 29, 2017. ♦
