Prison guards being assaulted twice as much

Simeon Brown released:

Prison violence is out of control under Labour, with prisoner assaults on Corrections officers increasing by an astonishing 95 per cent since the 2016/17, says National’s Corrections spokesperson Simeon Brown.

“Figures released to National and figures in the 2021 Corrections Annual Report show that, from the end of the 2016/17 financial year to the end of the 2020/21 financial year, assaults on Corrections officers have increased from 463 to more than 900.

It surely can’t be a coincidence that prison assaults have doubled in four years.
