Violence in Prisons

Does the IEP Scheme effectively tackle this menace, or can a prisoner just ride the basic for two weeks and start again, when I say violence I mean the broader scope of the meaning and just not physical assault. What other options are available out there instead of basic that will stop violence. Is ...

Re: Ian Wright - Football Behind Bars

Great intiative and apparently the results are there to see - major reduction in re-offending rates to date. I'm pretty sure that if the results were there to see, it would be rolled out to every single prison in the estate! Where are these results, is it value for money! Or just another high profi...

Re: SPDR's.

Not at all unusual for staff not to sign SPDRs - but nobody bothers in the end whether you do or not, unless you have raised a grievance as part of the SPDR process. Don't you think this situation is a condemnation of the system. It's obvious to me that Line Managers just go through the motions and...

Re: Strangeways Doc ITV

can't understand why Brice wasn't cuffed when removed to the seg' after assaulting staff? Cuffing is just so 2010. Try and keep up with the fashion Mrs Guest. You'll be calling it 'seg' next :help: . 2010-helps to de-escalate, reduces the struggle, easy to carry 2011- Excessive force of a mechanica...
