POA Press Releases

PR 105 02 Jul 2015


The thoughts of all POA members are with the family, friends and colleagues of Lorraine Barwell.

Although not a member of the POA, this unspeakable crime should serve to remind the public and politicians of the violent and unpredictable nature of the criminal justice workplace.

This is not about public good private bad or vice versa but a stark illustration that staff within the criminal justice system care for and control violent criminals 24 hours a day every day of the year in the essential protection of the public.

There is of course an ongoing police investigation which the POA are not prepared to compromise with further public comment at this time.
