    Prison Service in Australia

    Hi my name is Richard and i am new to this site, i am a serving Prison officer in the U.K wishing to relocate to Australia and work in there Prison service. I have been a Prison Officer for 10 years, but desperately want to move out to Oz, and would love to carry on in the job over there, can anyone help with any advice at all please??
  2. A prisoner has been allowed to become a father using IVF by using the Human Rights act even though he is still locked up, it says that his demand to let his partner be artificially insemnated was approved by the justice secretary ......... Kenneth Clarke.
  3. Hi all. This is my first time on this forum, well first time on any to be honest, so unsure what to do, but here goes. Myself and my family are thinking about moving to NZ. I am currently a prison officer, so I would be looking at jobs in the correctional facilities. My wife has been a local government worker all her life council tax/housing. I may have sorted a job for myself, but I am worried that when we get out there she wont be able to find work. We are thinking of moving to either Wellington or the Hawks Bay area. Any info on these areas would be great, Hawks bay would be ideal for us. Would just like to ask, whats the weather like over there, OH seems to think its just like the U.K, dull, damp and miserable, is she right. I have read a few threads on here and things look good/bad in NZ compared to the U.K. No jobs in NZ, lots of drink driving, locals very unfriendly, price of food/ housing higher than the U.K wages lower, less leave, god I am going on a bit... If I had a job at say $50k a year and a deposit of $163k would i get a decent house. What are the mortgage rates like monthly payments on a house say for $150k. I have gone on long enough and I apologize if all I have done is ask question, I just need to be sure for myself and my families sake that its the right move for us all. Many thanks and hope you all can help/advise. All the best petemel &( ickle charlie)
  4. One of Britain’s most notorious murderers walks free from jail this week after serving her sentence for a crime which robbed a family of a much-loved son. But Tracie Andrews refuses to apologise for the brutal stabbing of her fiancé Lee Harvey. Andrews, 41, insists it is now her ‘human right’ to get on with her life. She will go by the name Tia Carter and has had £5,000 surgery to alter her distinctive jaw and dyed her blonde hair brown. The former barmaid was jailed for life for killing Mr Harvey, 25, in 1996 during a row as they drove in a country road. She cut his throat and stabbed him 37 times with a penknife in the back, face, neck and chest. After leaving him to bleed to death, she concocted a story about a road-rage incident and blamed the other driver for the attack. Two days after the murder, Andrews went on television holding the hand of Mr Harvey’s mother Maureen to appeal for information to catch the killer The cutting above says it all really, i don't know what to think about this, she has served 14 years in prison for her crime, this to me belies my problem with it, to me someone committing a cold callous brutal murder should be in jail for a lot longer than this, his family are still really suffering, but she has served what she got and ................ should she be given another chance?

    Brother in prison

    Hi All, I have tried to dismiss the possibility, as logic would dictate, but can anyone give me a definitive answer? Will the fact that my brother is serving a life sentence in prison (for murder) affect my chances of having my visa application approved? I personally have no police record whatsoever. I tell myself that it shouldn't matter, but there is always that element of doubt. Many thanks. Paul

    Fremantle Prison

    The Convicts or POM's build the prison in 1850 - it was only decommissioned as a maximum-security prison in 1991. The gallows are still there and quite a sobering sight, they do a number of tours, they also do one at night (which I believe is very good but a bit scarey) and you can also do a tunnel tour. The guides are really imformative and the tour we took lasted about an hour and a half. The kids enjoyed learning about the history of the place - well worth a visit Ali
