FRIDAY, JUNE 15: Yesterday, the Department of Corrections announced via press release that the Westgate Correctional Facility planned to host its 5th Annual Father’s Day event for inmates this weekend.
The event will still take place, however due to the inclement weather being experienced, it will not happen this weekend as Malabar Field has been completely washed out. The Department of Corrections has rescheduled the initiative for a date in the near future.
The Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Sen. the Hon. Kim Wilson says of the event, “It is one of those programmes that is mutually beneficial to all concerned. We believe it fosters good will among our inmates and our officers and it is an especially significant programme which impresses the importance of our incarcerated fathers playing a role in their child’s life.”
The Annual Father’s Day initiative has grown from strength to strength since 2008.
