Young remembers murdered prison superintendent as 'true patriot'

National Security Minister Stuart Young joined with the family and colleagues of acting Superintendent of Prisons, Wayne Jackson, in his funeral service which took place on Monday.

Young expressed his deepest condolences and thanked them for supporting him when he delivered 30 years of service to the Prison Service.

Paying tribute at the funeral service for the prison's superintendent, Minister Young stated it was a privilege to have met Jackson while touring the Maximum Security Prison, Arouca, in August.

The Minister described Superintendent Jackson as a true patriot who performed his job with pride.

He thanked all prison officers for their service to T&T despite facing dangerous circumstances on a daily basis in the conduct of their duties.

Minister Young took the opportunity to reiterate that an attack on any law enforcement officer is an attack on all. He emphasized that all the National Security Ministry apparatus will work together to confront the criminal element in the country; that there will be a sustained collaboration among all national security agencies in combating crime.

The Minister said he was committed to working with the officers of the Prison Service and with all law enforcement agencies in providing safety and security to the citizens of T&T.
