Lack of staff shortening prison vocational workshops

Prison Director Neil Lavis said a lack of prison staff is making it difficult to provide a variety of vocational programmes.

The Prison Director for Her Majesty’s Prison Service in Northward said based on the low numbers of prison officers available it is difficult for him to staff other work shops outside of wood work. Mr. Lavis said the number of programmes available could change with the help of the private sector.

“We got some workshops at the moment that are empty and not being used and some of that is down to staff shortages so what we are looking is to partner with companies on Island some construction companies on island and air conditioning companies on island to reopen parts of the vocational work shops,” Mr. Lavis said.

The Prison Director said he also met with the Department of Environment to discuss inmates working in the Waste industry and Recycling industry.
