Two corrective services officers were suspended from duty this week as a result of an ongoing ethical standards investigations.
One officer was suspended due to allegations relating to an inappropriate relationship with a prisoner, inappropriate access of official information and failure to declare a conflict of interest.
The second was suspended due to inappropriate access of official information and failing to disclose a conflict of interest.
