Department of Corrective Services - alleged cover-up of an assault on an inmate at Parramatta Correctional Centre (Operation Inca)

The ICAC investigated the conduct of correctional officers employed by the Department of Corrective Services (DCS) in relation to an alleged cover-up of the assault of an inmate at Parramatta Correctional Centre (PCC) on 4 August 2005.

In its investigation report, made public on 8 June 2006, the ICAC found that the acting Deputy Governor of the PCC engaged in corrupt conduct and stated its opinion that consideration should be given to obtaining the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions with respect to the prosecution of the acting Deputy Governor and another DCS officer.

The ICAC also made 16 corruption prevention recommendations to the DCS to minimise the risk of such conduct reoccurring.
