We have proposed to the Corrective Services Commissioner, Minister, Shadow Minister and Greens for the use of e-cigarettes as a way to avoid problems of occupational health and safety while also being respectful to non-smoking inmates and staff. We believe that the government has a responsibility to avoid the potential conflict and tensions that may arise in NSW prisons following the ban.

E-cigarettes have been successfully used in UK prisons. These experiences have been outlined in two articles from Inside Time:

Justice Action is willing to assist in such an implementation if the government chooses to adopt it. At the moment we are still waiting for a response.
