Commissioner visits Maryborough

THE COMMISSIONER of Queensland’s Corrective Services arrived in Maryborough yesterday for the launch of an exhibition of artwork by prison inmates, but also seized the opportunity to run his eye over the local correctional centre, off the Bruce Highway, and found much to admire.

Kelvin Anderson dismissed claims that relations between security officers and prison management were strained.

“The new management means there will be change but it will be change for the better,” he said.

“Obviously everybody isn’t happy with change but change is coming and it’s for the best.

“We have not dropped any standards of our regime.

“We haven’t gone soft.”
