Monday October 26, 2009 –  Following a confirmation date from the Public Service Commission, former prison boss Mr Hilary Herman is scheduled to take up duties as Director of the  Bordelais Correctional Facility once again


That's according to Home Affairs and National Security Minister Senator Honourable Guy Mayers who says this will bring an end to much speculation and unease about the appointment.


After meeting with prison officers and the management of the prison last week, Senator Mayers says the staff have expressed their commitment to work with Mr Herman in the interest of the prison.


“In fact they indicated that the Prison Officers Association had met a few days before our meeting and there was consensus that all officers will work with Mr. Herman. I think that signals a new and good beginning at the prison, and I want to publicly thank the officers who are dedicated  to maintaining law and order at the facility.”


Meanwhile, the Minister has expressed optimism about an ongoing project to further develop five acres of land which is presently being used as the prison farm.


Senator Mayers says the development of the farm will assist with the rehabilitation of the inmates and reduce the recidivism rate at the prison.


“It is better to have the prisoners working on the farm than to have them locked up in a cell for the entire day. My vision is that as part of the rehabilitation programme,  inmates will work on the farm, develop a skill, and be productive enough to make the facility self sufficient,” Mayers said.


As part of the development project, the five acres of farm lands will be fenced and security cameras will be placed in strategic locations.
