Hostage rescue exercise

Hostage response training exercise at John Morony Correctional ComplexAn elite team of 70 correctional officers devoted to responding to any major emergency in NSW prisons have proved they are more than ready to maintain order. Attorney General and Minister for Justice Brad Hazzard and Corrective Services Commissioner Peter Severin last week viewed Corrective Services NSW - specialist Security Operations Group as it successfully resolved a mock hostage scenario at Windso's John Morony Correctional Complex. "I was extremely impressed by these officers" tactical and negotiation skills, and their command of Corrective Services NSW's weaponry and K9 teams," Mr Hazzard said.
