Statement regarding Brook House Immigration Removal Centre

G4S Custodial & Detention Services (UK) has been made aware of allegations regarding the conduct of a number of staff at Brook House Immigration Removal Centre (IRC)
Brook House

G4S immediately commenced an investigation into the allegations, reported them to the relevant authorities and as a precaution, has suspended nine staff pending further investigation.  

Commenting on the allegations, Jerry Petherick, Managing Director for G4S Custodial & Detention Services in the UK said:

“There is no place for the type of conduct described in the allegations anywhere in G4S.  Such behaviour is not representative of the many G4S colleagues who do a great job, often in difficult and challenging circumstances, across the country.

We have not yet been provided with the recorded evidence which forms the basis of the allegations and it is inappropriate for me to pre-judge the outcome of our investigation.  Once we have seen the evidence and concluded the investigation, I will ensure that we take the appropriate action.

We continue to focus on the care and wellbeing of detainees at Brook House.”
