Special rules ‘needed’ for prison officers


Share post:

A SEPARATE CODE of discipline is needed to control any bad seeds in the Barbados Prison Service.

That view was expressed by Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite, as officials at Dodds Prison continue investigating the possible breach of “fraternising” rules at the St Philip correctional facility by two female prison officers.

“I am clear that we need to have a separate code of discipline for prison officers, and not what presently obtains via the Civil Service legislation,” Brathwaite told the SUNDAY SUN.

He said, however, that any officers found breaking the rules that currently exist will be disciplined.
