(CNS Local Life): HM Cayman Islands Prison Service (HMCIPS) Officer Mark Purnwasy was named Employee of the Month for October 2016. Prison Director Neil Lavis said he was nominated for upholding the moral code of conduct for the Prison Service, and exemplifying the principles of decency, integrity, commitment and excellence. Lavis presented Officer Purnwasy, who was joined by colleagues and friends, with a framed certificate on Wednesday, 2 November 2016.

“Since Officer Purnwasy transferred to the Prison Service’s security unit, he has had a clear impact on the safety and security of this facility,” Lavis said. “I applaud him for modelling the code of conduct and personally contributing to making the Cayman Islands safer for us all.”

Colleagues who nominated Officer Purnwasy highlighted his professionalism and praised his routinely exemplary job performance.

Human resource manager Raquel Solomon said, “Over the last few months we have been making great finds of drugs and other contraband. I believe this is in part due to the great work of the security and intelligence team, in particular Officer Purnwasy.”

A plaque with a picture of Officer Purnwasy will hang on the walls at the HMP Fairbanks Administration Building for public viewing.

“I am delighted to honour staff that is on the ground doing good work,” Lavis said. “The Prison Service exists and operates because of hardworking people like Officer Purnwasy, and this is just a small way of recognising him for those efforts.”
