Guyana: Prisons Director urges retired officers to return to strengthen capacity

The Guyana Prison Service has issued a call for retired, senior non-commissioned officers of the Guyana Defence Force, the Guyana Police Force or the Prison Service to return in wake of a fire that destroyed the Camp Street Prison and multiple jail breaks.

This is according to a statement from the Government, in which Director of Prisons Gladwin Samuels announced that applications from these individuals were welcome.

This, he said, was in order to strengthen the capacity of the prisons.

“Recent challenges which the Guyana Prison Service has been faced with require us to look at all possibilities in strengthening our internal capacity,” he stated.

“We know that there is a core of experienced security services officers who have expressed a willingness to continue to give service to the nation and we believe it would be eminently sensible to engage these officers at this time,” he said.

Samuels invited these retired officers wanting to join the Guyana Prison Service to submit written applications to his office at 46 Brickdam, Stabroek.
