Barnett Government risks public safety by outsourcing Young Adults Facility

cpsucsalogo150The CPSU/CSA has condemned the Barnett Government's announcement today that multi-national company Serco will operate a new Young Adults Facility in Western Australia.

CPSU/CSA Secretary, Toni Walkington, says that the decision to outsource the new Young Adults facility will be disastrous for the state and put public safety at risk.

"Colin Barnett's Government says they care about Law & Order but they are outsourcing key parts of the justice system to private companies, said Ms Walkington.

"Private companies exist to make profits for their shareholders – they do not exist to keep the community safe. Over recent months serious doubts have been cast over multi-nationals and their management of prisons, detention centres and public services.

A recent comprehensive evaluation of public versus private management of a new facility shows there is no benefit to the state from outsourcing this facility.

If the State Government walks away from its responsibilities it will not be able to protect the community."

Ms Walkington said that a government that talks tough on Law & Order should not be outsourcing jobs in the justice system and putting public safety at risk.{jcomments off}
