The chair Person of the prison Officers association Mark Fairhurst blamed the hiring process of prison guards. He pointed out that the interviews were not done face to face but through a zoom call which makes the employers hire people with little to no experience.

“Staff being recruited don’t have face-to-face interviews… it’s all done on Zoom. A lot of people getting these jobs don’t have enough life experience and are susceptible to conditioning from prisoners. Your figures just prove what we’ve been warning the employer about for years.” Mark Fairhurst said.
