HM Prison Loddon


HM Prison Loddon

.

Loddon is a campus style prison, within a secure perimeter, providing accommodation for 280 medium security prisoners. The landscaped grounds, modern buildings and wide range of programs and activities provide an environment and facilities which, as closely as possible, resembles those available in the general community.

Drug free policy

Loddon was established as a drug-free prison from July 1 1993. Additional procedures are in place to enforce the drug-free policy and to encourage prisoners to remain drug free.

Prisoners at a drug-free prison must:
* Agree to undergo regular and random urine testing and participate in programs, as upon with case managers.
* Any prisoner at Loddon who tests positive to drugs or alcohol or refuses a urine test will be transferred immediately, as will any prisoner who is found guilty of a prison offence related to drugs or alcohol.

Release of Gorse Spider Mite

In 1998 as part of a biocontrol program, the gorse spider mite (Tetrnychus lintearius) was first released on this site to control gorse (Ulex europaeus).
