Be fair and fearless. This is the advice given by Prison’s Commissioner, Sterling Stewart, to his officers as they carry out their duties at the nation’s penal institution.
Recently a disturbance at the Golden Grove Prison resulted in several officers and inmates being injured.
There was also a fracas at the women’s prison recently.
In an interview with News Power Now, Commissioner Stewart said he continues to encourage his officers to be professional in the execution of their responsibilities.
Mr. Stewart said despite the tough nature of the job, officers have to deliver positive advice and values to the inmates, which can help in bringing about positive change.
