Officers were recognised for their achievement after completing a paid 10-week Custodial Officer Entry Program.

In addition to Woodford, the graduates will be posted to Arthur Gorrie, Borallon, Brisbane and Brisbane Women’s and Wolston correctional centres, as well as the Escort and Security Branch.

At the ceremony, two experienced off icers were recognised with the prestigious National Medal and Long Service and Good Conduct Medals.

Minister for Police and Corrective Services, Mark Ryan, said from supporting the community to get ready for natural disasters or equipping prisoners with vital life and employable skills, the work Queensland Corrective Services does is an essential part in the criminal justice system.
