Inquest told women’s prisons are ‘awash’ in illicit drugs

Women’s prisons in NSW are awash with illicit drugs that are fuelling “drug parties” and fatal overdoses, an inquest has revealed.

The death in custody of mother-of-three Tracy Brannigan from a heroin overdose should serve as a watershed moment that exposes the ”callous indifference” of correctional services and staggering drug abuse within prisons, prisoner advocate Brett Collins said.
