The recent prison break and spate of criminal activities linked to the escapees failed to taint the Fiji Corrections Service’s image.
For the third successive year in the Public Service Excellence Awards on Friday, the service scooped an Achievement Award.
This was in recognition from Government for improvement and efficient services they offered in the imprisonment and rehabilitation of prisoners.
Added to their list of achievement was an award to Chief Corrections Officer, Isireli Dausiga in recognition of his efforts for being an evaluator for the past five years.
Corrections Commissioner Lieutenant-Colonel Ifereimi Vasu said their wins signified their efforts in trying to be an internationally-acclaimed corrections service.
“I thank the staff for their individual commitment and hard work which saw the department bag another achievement award for the third time in a row.
“The Fiji Corrections Service cannot afford to be complacent as correction officers continue to face daily challenges in their line of duty,” Lt-Col Vasu said.
The service has prisons in Natabua in Lautoka, Vaturekuka in Labasa, Korovou in Suva, Namosau in Ba, Levuka in Ovalau and the Pre-release, Minimum and Maximum centres at the Naboro Corrections Complex.
