Lotus Glen Correctional Centre’s new General Manager has been named.
Chief Superintendent Gabriel Payne ACM will take up the role as General Manager at the centre in coming weeks.
Deputy Commissioner Gary McCahon said that Ch Supt. Payne would bring a wealth of corrections and management experience to the position of General Manager at the centre.
“Ch Supt Payne received the Australian Corrections Medal in 2020 for her 21-year career in Queensland corrections, particularly her commitment to improving operational service response to remote communities, enhancing a coordinated response to domestic and family violence and reducing the over-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander in the criminal justice system,” Deputy Commissioner McCahon said.
“Ch Supt Payne was previously Regional Manager of Community Corrections for Far Northern Queensland, and is highly regarded not only by her colleagues in Queensland Corrective Services, but by our stakeholders across the judicial system.
“She has acted as General Manager at the centre on several occasions.
“I have every faith that Ch Supt Payne will be warmly received by the staffing group at Lotus Glen Correctional Centre.
Ch Supt Payne will be supported by Deputy General Manager John Roberts,” DC McCahon said.
