Guy Hill

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.

    Does it make sense to appoint some one to run a prison who it appears has never before had a senior management role in a prison?

      @Hey… There will be no mass up no Hill from this man. He calls a spade a spade and not even you want to deal with that. Our people are too dam lawless and want to b**ch when they are being corrected. I know this man to be very fair with people, local or foreign doesn’t matter. I wish him all the best. This is our dam country and ALL of us need to protect it, even those that were granted indefinite immigration status.

    Be careful Guy. There is a Sr. Prison Officer up there who has a history of undermining every previous Prison boss up there. He is notorious for it.. hHe will pretend to be for you whilst cutting you down behind your back. But God is good all the time.

    @Resident…. you need to shut up and stop hating. Has Andrew Fahie ever run a country?

  18. Wish you well. says:

    Yes, watch out for those snakes.

  19. Yea man says:

    You truly cant keep a good man down, atlease for too long. If mr Hill was treated right from the begining i dont think this place would have been in the mess it is in right now. He has great foresight of what went on and is still going on here,but the Political train was always ready to derail him due to envy,hatred, jealousy and greed. Those things are just temperal, they dont last forever.
    Mr Hill you continue to be you, i know you could face whatever comes your way and with God on your side anything and everything is posible.
    Face the task,charter your course, and be the best you can be always.
    You are our hero you are a true Soldier. You deserve to be respected foryour love for this country, let them see how, and why,. Through this new endeavor we wish you the best, and the greatest of success……….. Blessings galore.

    Gui, congratulations on your appointment as Supt of Prison. Leading and managing a law enforcement organization/agency is a difficult and challenging job; a penal institution more so. Nonetheless, you have and have demonstrated the requisite knowledge, skill, ability and experience to effectively lead and efficiently manage Her Majesty Prison. It is not going to be a walk in the park or a day on the beach. However, stay the course, stay focus, keep your eyes on the prize, be vigilant, stay strong, do the right things……etc. Best of luck.

  26. Congrats Mr. Hill. Take it Serious. says:

    I will suggest you get as much new officers as possible, with a new mind set onea that you can train your way, those thats there are Leopards, Also look at the possibility of out sourcing the Guard Jobs to a private company..The present system and structure will not work. U will fail..

    Congratulation my brother, wish you all the best in your new very challenging job. I do hope you get the support from your Senior Management Team. You will meet opposers but you were selected to do a job and try to make a difference. As I said before it will not be easy, just keep your head on and put GOD first in whatever you do daily. Will keep you in my PRAYERS.
