Prison officers’ report soon
MORALE IS STILL very low among the staff at this country’s lone penal institution, and according to president of the Barbados Prison Officers’ Association, Trevor Browne, they plan to do something official about it.
Browne was the one who publicly spoke last November about how workers at Dodds Prison in St Philip were treated, and was advised by Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite to put those issues in writing and provide a detailed document to the ministry.
Brathwaite informed the SUNDAY SUN recently that his ministry was still to receive any documentation on the matter.
When asked why the association had not yet contacted the Attorney General’s office, Browne explained the issues facing prison officers were an evolving dynamic, and they wanted to present the Attorney General with a completed file. (BA)
