Prison boss charged with child porn offences

Mr Harper was responsible for overseeing the 559-bed Marngoneet jail and the 300-bed Karreenga that houses inmates who need to be separated from the rest of the prison population.

He has been at Marngoneet Correctional Centre since 2006 when he started as a casual prison officer before rising through the ranks. He has also been a general manager at Loddon and the maximum-security prison at Barwon.

A Department of Justice and Community Safety spokeswoman said the “prison officer” was no longer employed, and that they would not be commenting further as there was an ongoing police investigation.

“The Department of Justice and Community Safety can confirm that a Corrections Victoria prison officer is being investigated by Victoria Police,” she said.

“The integrity of Victoria’s corrections system is of the highest priority and all staff are required to uphold the utmost levels of professionalism and ethics. The department takes a zero-tolerance approach to breaches of our code of conduct.”
