star this property answer text <p /> <p>A fixed-term recall is one where an offender on licence is recalled for a 28 day period before being automatically re-released. It is available only to those offenders on licence who are not assessed as presenting a high risk of harm to the public. Offenders who are assessed as presenting a high risk of harm are not eligible to receive a fixed-term recall and will be given a standard recall, under which they can remain in custody, potentially, until the end of their sentence. They will be released before the end of their sentence only if the Parole Board or Secretary of State is satisfied they no longer need to be detained to protect the public.</p><p> </p><p>The statutory provisions for fixed-term recalls were included in the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 and commenced in July 2008. The provisions were amended by the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 and commenced in December 2012. The amendments were designed to provide offender managers with additional flexibility to determine whether a fixed-term recall was the appropriate way to respond to an offender’s breach of his licence conditions, notwithstanding that he had been given a fixed-term recall on a previous occasion.</p><p> </p><p>This Government is introducing a new test, in the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill, which must be applied to determine the type of recall given to an offender and to decide whether to re-release a recalled offender. The new test will ensure that any offender who has abused a fixed-term recall previously and persistently and wilfully refused to comply with his licence conditions will not receive a further fixed-term recall. The test will guide offender managers, so that all relevant considerations are taken into account before a decision is taken on the type of recall appropriate to deal with the breach of licence conditions. It will also ensure that a fixed-term recall is given only where we can be satisfied that the offender can be effectively managed when released after 28 days.</p><p> </p><p>The proportion of all recalls to prison that were fixed term given in the calendar years from 2008 is as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Calendar year</p></td><td><p>Total</p></td><td><p>Fixed Term Recall (FTR)</p></td><td><p>Proportion of Total Recalls which were FTRs</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014 (to June)</p></td><td><p>8412</p></td><td><p>3569</p></td><td><p>42%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>17330</p></td><td><p>7280</p></td><td><p>42%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>16481</p></td><td><p>5124</p></td><td><p>31%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>16227</p></td><td><p>4532</p></td><td><p>28%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>15479<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>4293<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>28%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009</p></td><td><p>14,719<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>3,979<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>27%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008<sup>2</sup></p></td><td><p>13,554<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>1,722<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>13%</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><sup>1</sup> denotes data that has not been published.

star this property answer text <p /> <p>A specialised system of restraint known as control and restraint (C&amp;R) has been developed over many years to ensure that prisoners can be controlled with minimum risk of injury to staff or prisoners. C&amp;R is a system of techniques used by a team of three officers as a last resort to bring a violent or unmanageable prisoner under control. Wherever possible staff are instructed to avoid use of force and de-escalate the situation by persuasion or negotiation. If the techniques are applied they are used for as short a time as possible.</p><p> </p><p>All prisons submit a central monthly return providing the number of times force has been used in the prison, and specifically the number of uses of C&amp;R. While this has been collated centrally since late 2009, to provide details since 2004 could only be achieved at disproportionate cost, as it would require contacting every prison individually and tracing data from prisons that have closed since 2004.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Any crime committed in prison is liable to be reported to the police depending on the aggravating and mitigating factors present and many offences committed in prison are already investigated by the police. The recently announced protocol on appropriate handling of crimes in prison sets out those crimes within prisons, including violent crimes, which must be reported by establishments to the police for consideration for investigation. It will be published before the end of the financial year following final consultation. The NOMS Unions are supportive of the protocol.</p><p> </p><p>Potential costs arising from any increase in the number of serious crimes that will now be dealt with by way of the Criminal Justice System rather than the prison disciplinary system will depend on a number of factors and the costs are expected to be covered through prioritising within existing Police and Departmental budgets for handling crime.</p><p> </p><p>The aim of the protocol is to strengthen existing policy and requirements on the reporting of crime. It is not intended to remove the internal prison adjudication system which can still be a cost effective means of dealing with minor crime in prison. We do not anticipate large numbers of additional crimes being processed through the courts as a result of this protocol. Rather, the protocol will be used to ensure that in those instances where a serious assault or other serious crime occurs there is greater consistency across prison, police and CPS areas in how it is dealt with so that this type of crime can be targeted. The protocol is subject to annual evaluation and review by the signatories.</p><p> </p><p>Tackling violence in prisons is a major priority of this Government and appropriate steps are being taken to manage increased levels of violence within a complex and challenging prison population. We will be issuing new guidance on managing violence early next year. The impact of the overall package of violence management measures will be monitored closely in the coming year. Consultation on all aspects of the revised violence management policy is ongoing. Trade Unions will be included in this consultation.</p>
