National Security Minister Stuart Young is commending the Prison Service for its steadfast efforts at providing rehabilitative initiatives to the inmate population, with the aim of preventing repeat offending.
He says Government is pursuing strategies which ensure that today’s offenders become tomorrow’s contributors to national development.
Meanwhile, Mr. Young says a number of infrastructural upgrades are being undertaken at the prisons.
These include plumbing and electrical upgrades at Remand Yard, Golden Grove to include toilet facilities and better lighting and ventilation.
CCTV is also being upgraded at the Maximum Security Prison, and a rehabilitation centre is being outfitted for female minors.
