Abstract The Kimberley Region comprises more than 262,000 square miles in the north of Western Australia, located more than 1,245 miles from Western Australia's capital, Perth. [...]late 2012, the area was serviced by just one prison, Broome Regional Prison, the oldest operating prison in Western Australia. While Australian society and the front end of the criminal justice system implement strategies to increase the socioeconomic status of Australia's indigenous population and reduce indigenous overrepresentation in prisons, correctional agencies across Australia are also becoming increasingly proactive to meet the needs of indigenous populations.
