Staff member allegedly poisoned in Bathurst Jail
Corrective Services NSW has launched an investigation after a female staff member at Bathurst Jail reportedly found cleaning fluid in her milk last week.
Ray Hadley received an exclusive tip from a listener claiming the worker found her milk had been tampered with in the staff-only meal room.
The listener claims the shocking bullying incident isn’t isolated, saying a high ranking officer also threatened a junior employee with physical violence in front of other staff.
Corrective Services NSW has confirmed an officer at the centre has been suspended following bullying allegations, with an investigation ongoing.
