Monday, June 06, 2005 - Security in prisons around the Caribbean will be high on the agenda for prison managers at a meeting in Dominica this week. Director of the Bordelaise Correctional Facility Mr. Hilary Herman is one of the top prison officials from eleven Caribbean countries participating in the United Kingdom sponsored conference under the theme “Maximising Our Resources: Planning for the Future.”

The meeting will also discuss the construction of new prisons in the region and international standards as they affect regional establishments, the effect of natural and man-made disasters on prisons and the development of joint training programmes.

The prison managers meeting is one of a number of such initiatives financed by the United Kingdom Government. Other programmes include a joint police and prison course held in Barbados earlier this year and a workshop on control and restraint techniques conducted in Saint Lucia.

Later this month Operations Manager of the Bordelaise Correctional Facility Mr. Dommick Soudine will participate in a Security Manager’s Workshop in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
