Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2009 Week 2 Hansard (12 February) . . Page.. 834..


The new recruits were recruited against a timetable to alleviate the staffing pressures and enable existing staff to attend training and access a considerable back-log of leave entitlements.

Non-custodial corrections officers employed by the ACT Government for the provision of corrective services at the AMC have been developing policies and procedures, delivering training and performing general duties to support the commissioning of the AMC. Further, probation and parole officers employed for the provision of corrective services at the AMC have been preparing rehabilitation plans for ACT sentenced prisoners, developing programs and releasing existing staff for training.

Part (10)

The custodial officers outlined in part (9) were employed as trainees for the duration of their 10 week induction training course and were subsequently engaged as Grade 1 Custodial Officers upon completion of that course.

Non-custodial officers outlined in part (9) were all employed as permanent staff from the commencement of their relevant courses.

Part (11)

None of the staff employed since November 2007 are excess to current staffing requirements, as outlined by part (9). In progressing through from commissioning to comprehensive operational levels at the AMC, staff will be required at all correctional facilities including AMC, Belconnen Remand Centre, Symonston Temporary Remand Centre and the Periodic Detention Centre.
