Prison Official Visitors Program

Prison Official Visitors are members of the community who are appointed to visit prisons and reception centres to check on the way in which prisoners and detainees are being treated. They also investigate complaints made to them by prisoners and detainees.

Official Visitors operate independently from the Tasmanian Prison Service. Consistently with their independence, their administrative support is provided by the Office of the Ombudsman and Health Complaints Commissioner.
