Prisons Commissioner Gerard Wilson says the lack of supervision of prisoners will not be tolerated.
In a press release issued today commissioner Wilson said "measures are being put in place which would see officers being held accountable for their inactions. "
His comment follows the recent circulation of two videos on social media.
One has since been confirmed to be in circulation for over 2 years.
The prisons commissioner has however described the second and most recent video of a lone prisoner displaying illegal items as a cause for concern.
He said while the inmate was identified and action taken against him, videos of prisoners engaging in illicit activities embarrass the organization and brings the integrity of all officers into question.
