Published: Fri 7 Jun 2024 09:05 AM
The PSA represents 4300 Corrections staff and is extremely proud of our members on the frontline in dealing with a serious and challenging situation which posed a significant risk to them and offenders.
The event unfolded rapidly and we want to acknowledge the efforts of staff who were directly involved in moving offenders to safety - their efforts undoubtedly saved many from serious harm.
The review recommends a raft of changes - the PSA will consider its findings and will work to ensure all recommendations which lead to a safer working environment for our members are adopted.
Note: The PSA will not make further comment at this stage.
