Women's prison marks 20 years of service to the Victorian community

Victoria’s only maximum security women’s prison marked the significant milestone of 20 years of operation on Monday, 22 August 2016. The Dame Phyllis Frost Centre (DPFC) – originally named the Metropolitan Women’s Correctional Centre – opened in 1996 and was later renamed in honour of Dame Phyllis Frost, a tireless advocate for the rights of women prisoners, who died in 2004. The prison now houses about 400 prisoners, more than three times its initial capacity.
