Disturbance, Borallon Training and Correctional Centre

QCS can confirm there was a disturbance this morning at Borallon Training and Correctional Centre.

A number of prisoners in two units damaged viewing windows in their cells, and some flooded their cells.

The prisoners were non-complaint to directions, and responding officers used a chemical agent on one prisoner during a cell extraction.

At that point the remaining prisoners complied with directions and were safely restrained and removed from the damaged cells.

Officers are being praised for the professional manner with which they handled the situation.

The centre is now calm and remains in lock down while the damage is repaired. Essential services within the centre are continuing.
