A female prison worker has been charged over allegations she had sex with an inmate at the facility she was employed at.

The 25-year-old woman was arrested at an Ingleburn home in Sydney's south west this morning and taken to Campbelltown Police station where she was interviewed.

"The allegation is there were five sexual acts, separate incidents, at the facility in Sydney's west," Detective Inspector Robert Hollows, Commander of Corrective Services Investigation Unit said today.

A woman has been arrested over an alleged inappropriate relationship with an inmate.

The woman is also accused of taking contraband including tobacco, lighters and chewing gum into the prison.

The police investigation was sparked last week when Corrective Services notified detectives of the inappropriate relationship between the woman and the prisoner.

The inmate had been moved to another facility after their alleged relationship was exposed.

The 25-year-old has been charged with misconduct in a public office and engaging in a sexual relationship that's inappropriate within a correctional centre, Detective Inspector Hollows said.

At the time of her arrest, the prison worker had already been suspended from her job by Corrections NSW for failing to declare association with a former inmate.

Police said she had been in a relationship with a second prisoner since November last year.

The woman is expected to be granted bail later today.
