Corrections Day

PSA General Secretary Stewart Little and POVB Chair Nicole Jess celebrated Correction Day at the official opening of the new rapid build Hunter Correctional Centre. “A state-run correctional system works best to protect the people of NSW and rehabilitate inmates. In the past 12 months, a bid from the public sector kept John Morony in public hands, while the nearby privatized facility at Parklea is to be scrutinised by a parliamentary committee. I would like to congratulate each and every member in every part of Corrective Services for their expertise, dedication and professionalism.”
