star this property answer text <p>The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) does not hold records of employees charged with all types of criminal activity.</p><p>Whilst the vast majority of its staff are honest and hard working, NOMS is committed to detecting, deterring and disrupting all corrupt behaviour by individuals working in prisons. A dedicated NOMS Corruption Prevention Unit was set up to ensure staff corruption is identified and tackled. As part of this work NOMS has compiled a central record of staff convicted of criminal offences which meet the NOMS definition of corruption.</p><p> </p><p>The NOMS definition is: Corruption occurs when a person in a position of authority or trust abuses their position for their or another person’s benefit or gain. This would include the misuse of their role in order to plan or commit a criminal act, or a deliberate failure to act to prevent criminal behaviour.</p><p> </p><p>The central record does not therefore include all types of criminality as not all offences meet the definition.</p><p> </p><p>There were 23 convictions for corruption-related offences during 2013. A breakdown of the different sentences is provided below.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Sentences</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>4 years 6 months imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>4 years imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>3 years imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 year 9 months imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 year 4 months imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 year 1 month imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1 year imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>9 months imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>8 months imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>6 months imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>4 months imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>10 months imprisonment</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>12 month custodial sentence suspended for 2 years.</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>11 months custodial sentence suspended for a year</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>9 months custodial sentence suspended for 12 months, 200 hours community service</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>8 months custodial sentence suspended for 2 years and a 6 month residency order</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>4 months custodial sentence suspended for 2 years</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>4 months custodial sentence suspended for 2 years, 100 hours unpaid work</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>12 months Community Order, 150 hours unpaid work</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>100 hours community service and 12 months probation</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Community Order.

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The number of investigations into prison imams completed between 1 January 2010 and 30 June 2014 was 13, 9 of which resulted in disciplinary action. Figures have not been provided for individual years as the numbers in each year, other than 2013, are five or fewer. The detail cannot be provided to prevent identification or disclosure relating to individual cases. Similarly, information on the alleged breach of conduct and discipline is not being provided for the same reasons.</p><p> </p><p>There are 100 directly employed and also 120 sessional Muslim Chaplains. All employed Chaplains go through a robust recruitment process. Following a competency based application and panel sift there is a three part board consisting of sermon, role play and panel interview. A Chaplain also requires endorsement by their faith community - for Muslim Chaplains this would be the NOMS Muslim Adviser. Sessional Muslim Chaplains are required to have the appropriate Islamic credentials checked by our Muslim Adviser. A disciplinary investigation for an employed Chaplain follows the same process as that for any other NOMS employee.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Public Protection is a key priority for this Government. Given the social and financial costs incurred by high reoffending rates, it is imperative that we act now to help offenders turn their backs on crime. With more than half a million crimes committed each year by those who have broken the law before, the status quo is not an option. It is for this reason that the Government set out in the Coalition Agreement our commitment to reform offender rehabilitation services.</p><p> </p><p>The Government does of course understand the need to implement these reforms in a manner that ensures that public safety is maintained. This is why we have been clear that we will manage these changes in a controlled way and will not proceed until we are satisfied that it is safe to do so. We continue to monitor the performance of the system.</p><p> </p> more like this
