About Auckland Prison

Auckland Prison, also known as Paremoremo, accommodates 681 prisoners and contains New Zealand’s only specialist maximum-security prison unit. It is located on Auckland's North Shore, employs 313 staff and is part of Prison Services' Northern Region.

The original part of the prison, East Division, opened in 1968 and at that time was one of the most modern institutions of its kind in the world.

To relieve overcrowding at other institutions, in particular Mt Eden Prison, Auckland West division was added to house medium-security male prisoners in 1981. Auckland Prison also has a minimum-security work and pre-release unit, Te Mahinga, and a special treatment unit for child sex offenders.
