star this property answer text <p>The number of indeterminate sentenced prisoners held in open prisons in England and Wales, for financial years 2012 - 2014, can be found in table 1.</p><p> </p><p>A life sentence is mandatory on conviction for murder. Under a life sentence, and an indeterminate sentence for public protection (IPP), the court determines the minimum period to be served in prison for the purposes of punishment and deterrence. Prisoners serving these indeterminate sentences have no automatic right to be released. If released they are subject to recall for the rest of their life or, in the case of an offender serving an IPP, for at least 10 years. Public protection is the priority and the release of indeterminate sentence prisoners once they have served their minimum term is entirely a matter for the Parole Board.</p><p>Progression to open conditions is never automatic and only follows a satisfactory assessment of risk, generally involving the independent Parole Board in the case of prisoners serving indeterminate sentences.</p><p>The Parole Board may recommend such prisoners for open conditions if, for example: they have successfully completed any offending behaviour programmes identified in their sentence plan as essential to the risk reduction process; their behaviour in custody is such that it is considered that a move is appropriate; and their risks are manageable in open conditions.</p><p>Once allocated to open prison, prisoners continue to be monitored and are returned to closed prison immediately if there are any concerns about their suitability for low security conditions.</p><p> </p><p>Open prisons have been used since 1936, because they are the most effective means of ensuring that prisoners are suitably risk-assessed before they are released into the community under appropriate licence conditions. When a prisoner moves to the less rigid structure of open conditions an assessment can be made in a relatively safe environment of how the prisoner will adapt to increasing responsibility. For many prisoners, in particular those such as life sentence prisoners, who have spent a considerable amount of time in custody; these are essential components for successful reintegration in the community and therefore an important factor in protecting the public.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The proportion of male and female prisoners held in open, closed and resettlement prisons in England and Wales, for years 2010 - 2014, can be found in table 1.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Categorisation and allocation to open prison is never an automatic progression. Public protection is foremost in the decision making process. Only prisoners whose risks are manageable in conditions of low security will be allocated to an open prison. Where necessary, offending behaviour work will be undertaken in closed conditions in order to reduce an offender's risk before transfer.</p><p> </p><p>Once allocated to open prison, prisoners continue to be monitored and are returned to closed prison immediately if there are any concerns about their suitability for low security conditions.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Placing a prisoner in open conditions serves two main purposes. Firstly, it facilitates the eventual resettlement of prisoners into the community, in conditions more similar to those that they will face in the community than closed conditions can provide. Open prisons provide resettlement benefits including opportunities for training and employment, to re-establish family ties and to enable housing needs to be met prior to the prisoner’s eventual release into the community.</p><p> </p><p>Secondly, it allows for risk to be assessed in order to inform release decisions and, should the prisoner secure release, to inform risk management plans for ongoing supervision in the community. Thus, for many prisoners who have spent a considerable amount of time in custody, this can assist in their successful reintegration in the community and help protect the public.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Keeping the public safe is our priority. That is why the current Government has taken action on both releases on temporary licence (ROTL) and absconds from prison. Last year, a fundamental review of ROTL policy and practice was commissioned and, in March 2014, a package of measures was announced to ensure that the public was properly protected. Some of those measures have been brought forward so that they begin to take effect immediately, particularly with more serious offenders where the review concluded that an enhanced risk assessment approach should be taken.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The public have understandable concerns about the failure of some prisoners to return from temporary release from open prison. Keeping the public safe is our priority and we will not allow the actions of a small minority of offenders to undermine public confidence in the prison system. The number of temporary release failures remains very low—less than one failure in every 1,000 releases and about five in every 100,000 releases involving alleged offending—but we take each and every incident seriously. The Government has already ordered immediate changes to tighten up the system as a matter of urgency. Prisoners are no longer transferred to open conditions if they have previously absconded from open prisons, or if they have failed to return or re-offended while released on temporary licence.</p><p> </p><p />

Totals are formed from unrounded parts prior to rounding. For this reason, totals may not equal the sum of their rounded parts.</p><p> </p><p>The number of prison officers and operational support grade staff that have been employed by National Offender Management Services (NOMS) as at 31 March, 2010 – 2014 can be found in table 3 of the Quarterly NOMS Workforce Statistics Bulletin, which can be found at the following website:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-offender-management-service-workforce-statistics-march-2014" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-offender-management-service-workforce-statistics-march-2014</a></p><p> </p><p>The number of prison officers and operational support grade staff that were employed in contracted establishments for the last 10 years is not available via NOMS central databases. Individual contractors are responsible for gathering, monitoring and analysing their own data regarding their staff. However a request has been made to private contractors for the latest data and I will write to you again when I receive this information.</p><p> </p><p>Benchmarking is the best means of delivering value for money for the public purse (on track to deliver £84 million by the end of 2013/2014, savings of £175 million by 2015/2016). It optimises the skills of staff by introducing new ways of working and puts all prison officers in prisoner-facing roles. It has been agreed with the Unions, and the NAO has commented that the wider strategy is the most coherent and comprehensive for many years. It delivers efficiencies whilst ensuring that public sector prisons can operate safely, decently and securely.</p>
