Prisoners Rewarded With DVD Players For Good Behavior
Inmates at Darwin prison have been given access to portable DVD players as a reward for good behaviour.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the Northern Territory News understands prisoners are being allowed to hire a machine to watch movies in their own cells.

Prison superintendent Kevin Raby said that portable DVD players were part of an "incentive-based program" for low security "clients".

But some prison officers believe the DVD players are a luxury the inmates could do without.

One prison officer said Berrimah jail was one of the "softest" in Australia.

Alice Springs and Darwin prisons are both over capacity and some inmates sleep in converted shipping containers.

NT Government plans to build a 300 million dollar prison on the outskirts of Darwin capable of holding up to 800 inmates.
