“The work there is intense, officers face different situations on a daily basis and they have good experience and a sharp platform to operate from. One thing we don’t have here is a solid training ground. In many countries they send their staff to a training prison, but in Seychelles we only have one functioning prison. We have to approach things a little differently to keep our staff safe, especially when they are in training,” added the manager.
