John Morony Correctional Complex

John Morony Correctional Complex, an Australian maximum and minimum security prison complex for males and females, is located in Berkshire Park, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Windsor in New South Wales, Australia. The complex is operated by Corrective Services NSW, an agency of the Department of Attorney General and Justice, of the Government of New South Wales.

The complex comprises three separate correctional facilities including the John Morony Correctional Centre (a medium security correctional centre for men); the Outer Metropolitan Multi Purpose Correctional Centre (a minimum security correctional centre for men); and Dillwynia Correctional Centre (a medium security correctional centre for women).

The complex accepts felons charged and convicted under New South Wales and/or Commonwealth legislation.

Additional administrative units of Corrective Services NSW are located on-site including the Security & Intelligence Branch, the Specialised Training Unit, the Drug Detector Dog Unit and the Pre Release Programs Unit.

The complex is named after a former commissioner, John Morony, who rose up through the ranks from a prison officer to become Comptroller General of the New South Wales Department of Corrective Services. He retired in 1971 and took up a position on the New South Wales Parole Board, which he had been instrumental in setting up. The complex is built over the former boys' home "Daruk Training School for Boys". In 1960, "Daruk" Training School at Windsor was opened, and school age juvenile offenders were sent here leaving Mount Penang to train the older boys. From this time, schooling was on a voluntary basis.

Famous quotes containing the word complex:

    When distant and unfamiliar and complex things are communicated to great masses of people, the truth suffers a considerable and often a radical distortion. The complex is made over into the simple, the hypothetical into the dogmatic, and the relative into an absolute.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
