Prison staff receive jubilee medal

Almost a hundred members of staff at Jurby prison have been given the Queen's Jubilee Medal.

The medals were presented by Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood, who said the Prison and its personnel played an important role by helping to maintain community safety in the Island and re-settling offenders into the community on completion of their sentences.

A total of 96 officers at Jurby qualified to receive the Jubilee Medal, which is being issued on behalf of the Queen to honour the dedication and service of people working in key front line services, including members of the Armed Forces with at least five years operational service.

Mr Wood presented medals to 40 members of staff at Jurby, while the remaining staff will receive their medals from Prison Governor Alison Gomme.
