Mt Eden Corrections Facility (MECF)’s new buildings were opened on 30 March 2011. The buildings were constructed to replace the 120-year-old Mt Eden Prison which was emptied of prisoners and closed in mid-2011. Read about the history of Mt Eden Prison (PDF 131KB).
MECF was specifically designed for remand prisoners. Remand offenders generally spend a short period of time in prison, so there is a high turnover of prisoners. The accommodation units allow prisoners to be segregated into manageable groups.
The buildings previously known as Auckland Central Remand Prison (ACRP) opened in July 2000, and were incorporated into MECF on 1 May 2011.
The day to day management of MECF is carried out by global service provision company Serco under contract to the Department of Corrections. Find out more about the contract management of MECF.
As part of its contract, Serco is required to report on its performance against measures set by Corrections. Find out more about the performance of MECF, including performance measurement reults.
