Infrastructure plays a vital role in keeping Victorians safe.

Our police, emergency services, legal and correctional systems – the people delivering our critical justice and community safety services – all rely on infrastructure to do their work.

That is well designed, fit-for-purpose and technologically capable infrastructure.

The Community Safety Building Authority (CSBA) within the Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS) works with a range of partners in design and construction to deliver Victoria’s new prisons, youth justice centres and court and custody facilities, in addition to emergency services facilities and public safety features, on behalf of agencies across the justice and emergency services sectors. 

We also modernise, expand and upgrade existing infrastructure within the corrections, youth justice and emergency services portfolios.

As at March 2023, CSBA is leading 53 active projects with a combined approved budget of over $2.6 billion.
