ABOUT 100 prison wardens from the Fiji Corrections Service were reminded to put in more effort and commitment for the remainder of the year.

This was highlighted by the Commissioner of Corrections, Lieutenant Colonel Ifereimi Vasu, during the first quarter parade at Naboro on Friday.

Lt-Col Vasu said the first quarter was filled with a lot of challenges but more was to be expected throughout the year.

"I must commend you all for the hard work that had been carried out throughout the first quarter but I must also remind you all that more needs to be done in order for us to achieve the goals that have been set for us to achieve," he told the corrections officers.

"Our various programs that are in place for those under our care have shown promising results as there is a greater change in their lives.

"This goes to show that our rehabilitation programs have proven to be successful so far."

Lt-Col Vasu said with the additional number of wardens joining the service, the department was adamant it would continue to strive for excellence.
