The aim of Corrections Week is to highlight the work done by Corrections Officers within the Island’s prison facilities. The week will also serve to highlight the many community service and outreach programmes undertaken by inmates.

Premier Dunkley said, “As Premier and Minister of National Security, I’m pleased to join with the Commissioner and the employees of the Department on the observation of their inaugural Corrections Week.

“Corrections Week is in keeping with other jurisdictions in recognising the contributions of Corrections Officers and support personnel who work in our prison facilities. It highlights the works that they do in helping to keep our community safe.”
