LAST GOVERNOR BACKGROUNDS HIS SICK LEAVE LETTER

September 2, 2017

LAST week I was reading the newspaper over breakfast when I almost choked on my cornflakes.

 

The caption staring at me read "Prison sickies: Rise in jail escapes blamed on alarming staff shortages".

 

After 30 years with NSW Corrections, I am quite aware of staff sick leave being an 'issue.'

 

During my 10 years as a prison governor sick leave was blamed for everything from budget blowouts to lost productivity but never, ever, had I heard of staff absenteeism being somehow linked to inmate escapes.

 

Working behind those four walls is a difficult and dangerous job. Dealing with inmates on a daily basis is not easy, violence is rife and apart from the very high possibility of being a victim of that very brutal environment, the chances of contracting disease is always present.
