A warning has been issued to Prison Officers from their boss, that if they insist on taking contraband into the nations Prisons, they will be caught and dealt with.

Commissioner of Prisons Gerard Wilson told News Power Now that methods are being adopted now to deal with officers up and down the ranks of the Prison Service to weed-out those who engage in the practice.

“There are a number of factors” said the Prisons Commissioner as to why any Prison Officer will choose to lean towards that type of action, clearly going against the reason for joining the Prison Service.

Mr Wilson added whatever the problem, systems have been put in place to deal with them and if an Officer chooses to remain on the wrong path, it will be to their undoing.
