While their methods of getting the Government’s attention may be frowned upon, the Prison service says it has had to resort to using extreme methods of getting the attention of the authorities.
President of the Prison Service Association Cerron Richards in an interview with News Power Now this morning revealed that the Prison Service is constantly faced with extreme conditions.
He said that prison officers are being killed and no cohesive or effective approach is being taken to stem the situation.
He said the problem had to be tackled from the highest level.
He disclosed that the Parliament had to enact laws that would effectively treat with the issue.
He divulged that while he was aware of public perception, it had become necessary to highlight where the emphasis needed to be.
