Bimberi Youth Justice Centre—security protocols

Ms BURCH (in reply to questions by Mr Seselja and Mrs Dunne on Thursday, 10 March 2011): I would like to advise Members that the Woodwork Trainer undertook the required pre-employment checks, including an appropriate police records check. During 2010, the Trainer worked for three days per week from 22 November until 15 December 2011. The Trainer was given a Bimberi Security induction before commencing employment in November 2010 and subsequently attended daily resident and security briefings until the end of the 2010 school year.

The Trainer re-commenced work after the school holidays on

31 January 2011 to attend a week long orientation and site induction program to the Murrumbidgee Education and Training Centre. The Trainer attended for the 3 days that he was rostered for duty.

In relation to duress alarms, the policy is to provide all staff who have face to face contact with young people with duress alarms. In the past there have been no comprehensive records in relation to the allocation of duress alarms. This has been rectified and improved record keeping was introduced in 2011.

As such, the Department can confirm that the Trainer on his return from school holidays this year was issued with a personal duress alarm on 3 February 2011.
