A serving prison officer is being investigated by her bosses for speaking out about conditions inside Lewes Prison.

Kim Lennon, 47, from Lewes, revealed problems with overcrowding and staff shortages to The Argus earlier this month.

Four days later she received a letter from the prison governor Nigel Foote telling her he had ordered an investigation due to allegations she had “failed to meet the required standards of behaviour expected of staff”.

He has asked investigators to look into allegations Ms Lennon “has potentially discredited the Prison Service by disclosing official information”.

The investigation is also prompted by allegations she used “abusive language over the telephone” to another member of prison staff “causing distress”, the documents seen by The Argus reveal.

The letter does not say what her punishment could be.

Ms Lennon, currently signed off work sick due to stress, said she does not regret speaking out.

She said: “I have told the truth. If I get fired for that I think that would be unjust.

“The staff are behind me but a lot have not been brave enough to speak out.

“I am a good officer and I am sick to death of the way prisoners and staff have been treated.

“I will defend my job because I love my job, but at the moment I am taking it one day at a time.”

Ms Lennon, who has worked at Lewes for ten years, told The Argus staff were demoralised, overworked, up to 20 were off sick and drugs use was “rife” inside the male-only prison.

She spoke to The Argus on the same day that chief inspector of prisons Nick Hardwick revealed a rapid rise in prisoner suicide rates were due to overcrowding and staff shortages.

A Prison Service spokesman said: “It would be inappropriate to comment during an ongoing disciplinary process.”

If the terms of her contract have been breached, then she must face the music.

What stopped her raising her concerns through the correct channels?

I would like to see the Prison Officers looked after but issues should have been raised via the unions.

However, I couldn't give a monkey's knacker about the actual inmates.

Filthy, criminal scum as far as I am concerned.

It's amazing how views differ, with the opinion that it should have been "raised via the unions" who a lot of people would catagorise as filthy scum
who only look after their own interests and not those of their members.

That applies to those who use the proper channels to report system failures, etc.

We have seen how those who choose the public route are hounded and often prosecuted.

Whistleblowers are crucial so unpalatable truths come out. She probably didn't go through the 'proper channels' cos she knew she'd be a) ignored or b) reprimanded. Well done - we need more whistleblowers to expose bad practice and incompetance.

And by going public, do you really think the prison authorities are intent on correcting what she reported?

The very fact that they are more concerned with disciplinary proceedings shows that they fully intend to ignore her.

Which proves the structural problem. They're in the wrong, not her.

I have broken the law many times.

In 1944 I stole a gumdrop from the local sweet shop (rations as well!)

In 1953 I was caught scrumping pears.

In 1957 (a bad decade for crime) I was 18 yet I got half price on the local bus (which was then 17)

In 1961 I poached a 4lb trout without a fisherman's licence. It was lovely

In 1972 I found a £1 note at a Beach Boys concert and kept it!!!

In 1979 I took my boy out of school for a day trip to France and said he had the belly ache

In 1987 I was two days late with my tax disc.

In 1996 I watched a pirate VHS copy of the film "True Romance"

But I think I have been straight for the past 18 years.

I should rot in gaol!!!

Wrong again sunshine. What is a worry is that prison is not just a punishment but should always aim to rehabilitate the offender. Sadly in this country we focus on the first but less on the latter. Chris Grayling has done a superb job of destroying the Prison Service and the Probation Service, meanwhile suicides and self harm go up, more prison officers are suffering and the service is in crisis.

There are excellent examples around the world of prison systems actually working - but not in the UK. Of course such systems wouldn't get votes in this country.

As a member of the Prison Service all staff have to sign the Official Secrets Act. The question is does whistleblowing cover this. I suggest not, if you were informing the public on certain prisoners then you are breaching the Official Secrets Act. The question is if it is the public interest or an interest to the public. The HMIP publish findings about conditions and regimes and there has been lots of media interest about the safety of staff and prisoners due to the cuts this government has been making. Your case will rely on this but I guarantee they will use any tactic to discredit you. Good luck. Provide facts and facts alone, keep it to yourself until this has completed. I left the Service last year as I feared it was going to get worse. Mix have been proved right.

If you loons had your way, prison would be a big holiday camp
where the only mandatory courses would be Yoga and deep meditation classes on how to love oneself more.

You hypocrites don't want criminals punished, unless it's YOU who is violated of course, and then you want the same harsh judgement you apply to everyone else who doesn't share your lack of morality.

If you work for a private company and decide to criticise them you can expect to be reprimanded. In this case, the officer is identifying shortcomings of a publicly funded institution, and she should be applauded. I urge everyone to write to the governor asking when these shortcomings (which have not been denied) can be investigated. It is him who is responsible for running the prison, and he should be glad he's still got his job, he should be putting his efforts into improving the prison, not attacking the staff.

Firstly they will sack her. She will then seek compensation, be awarded a fortune by the court, retire to Spain, and nothing will change at the prison.
The tax payer will be the loser meanwhile.

Kim Linton is a good officer friendly, fair but firm, doesn't take crap. She doesn't, like lots of other officers slag off the regime in front of prisoners.

As for suggestion she upset someone with her language, really you work in a prison and are traumatised by a phone call? Officers regularly use language as foul as the inmates.
