Guy-Michel Hill has been appointed as the new head of Her Majesty’s Prison in Balsam Ghut.
He has been contracted to serve in the post for the next two years effective on July 3.
As the new Superintendent of Prison, Hill will be responsible for the efficient management and operation of the rehabilitation facility.
A government media release issued on Friday said Hill has more than 20 years of extensive experience in the public service, particularly law enforcement.
“He served in various ranks at the Immigration Department including the leadership role as Deputy Chief Immigration Officer prior to his retirement in 2018,” the release said.
“Mr Hill holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Sociology from the University of Texas at El Paso along with several training certificates in the areas of criminology, surveillance, supervision and investigations.”
Hill is the immediate successor of Verne Garde whose contractual appointment ended on July 2, 2021.
