Probation and prison merger won't mean job losses

A modernisation process to improve efficiencies and promote cost effectiveness.

That’s how plans to merge the Island’s probation and prison services have been described.

The combined service will come into effect from April, led by prison governor Alison Gomme, with David Sellick, the Island’s Chief Probation Officer for the past two decades, due to take early retirement.

Home Affairs Minister Adrian Earnshaw says there’ll be no job losses as part of the reorganisation.
