In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, the general public is asked to note the following initiatives will be implemented at His Majesty’s Prisons in Kingstown, Belle Isle, and the Female Prison.
From December 12, 2022 to January 6, 2023, inmates at all facilities will be allowed snacks and fast-food items from their relatives and friends on weekdays only, between the hours of 9:00 am to 1:00pm. These can include Subway, KFC, roti and other food items.
On Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day, between the hours of 9 am and 3 pm, home-cooked Christmas meals including cake will be accepted.
Inmates can also receive non- alcoholic beverages including Malt, Coco Cola, Hairoun and soft drinks. Please note that no homemade or alcoholic beverages will be accepted.
The public is asked to note that all means must be brought in disposable containers.
These initiatives are being done in an effort to promote good morale among the inmates.
The Superintendent and staff of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Prison Department take this opportunity to wish each and everyone a safe and enjoyable Christmas and a peaceful and productive New Year.
