Written answers (Question to Justice)

I can assure the Deputy that there is a comprehensive system of CCTV coverage in place at Castlerea Prison including its perimeter boundaries.

The detailed information requested in relation to the number and operation of the various cameras and equipment cannot be supplied. As the Deputy will appreciate its disclosure could potentially compromise the security of the prison.
