FOLLOWING recent prison breaks, the police have confirmed they will review procedures.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the force was working closely with the Fiji Corrections Service to curb prison breaks.

Ms Naisoro said the recent escape of remand prisoners from police custody was the result of procedures not being followed thoroughly and laxity on the part of the police to properly enforce them.

"Whatever the reason is, when a remand prisoner escapes from our custody we don't make excuses and our priority is then focused on the recapture mission," she said.

Ms Naisoro said there were standard operating procedures in place which dealt with the monitoring of those in custody along with the monitoring and compliance with procedures.

"Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua had stated that those holding supervisory and senior positions would be held accountable for anything that goes wrong," she said.
