Prison officers told to be alert especially when off-duty amid WhatsApp threat


    A warning has gone out all prison officers to be extremely cautious and vigilant especially when off-duty.

    This comes from Commissioner of Prisons Gerard Wilson after several threats began circulating via WhatsApp , indicating a plot to ‘kill any two officers’.

    According to him, all security agencies are on high alert and directives are in place, especially for officers who live in what are deemed ‘high risk’ areas.

    The Prison Service says it continues to partner with other security agencies to uphold its mandate of safety and security for all.
