Managing people in prison
We aim to provide a safe, secure and humane environment for people serving prison sentences and for our prison based staff.
We've introduced operational and security improvements to help minimise escapes and the rate of escapes from prison has been steadily declining.Learn more about Preventing escapes
Force is not used as a means of punishment. Force can only be used once prison staff have exhausted every effort to diffuse a situation peacefully without the need for force.Learn more about Use of force
People in prison are known to be at a higher risk of suicide and self-harm than the general population.Learn more about Preventing suicide and self harm
When a person in prison dies we look into the death, and make arrangements taking into account the spiritual, religious and cultural beliefs of the deceased.Learn more about Deaths in custody
