Suspended prison officer resigns

The prison officer who was suspended after he was suspected of having provided false information on his application resigned on Friday, a statement from Her Majesty’s Cayman Islands Prison Service said.

The investigation into the matter was completed Friday, according to the statement, and the suspended officer was called in to be formerly charged under the Prison Officers Discipline Regulations (1999 Revision). At that time, the officer opted to resign, the statement said.

In its first statement on the matter, the prison service said it was acting on information from “an anonymous source” who “alerted the prison management that an officer in their employment may have a criminal conviction stemming from an incident that occurred over a decade ago.”
