star this property answer text <p /> <p>The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) charged Penal Reform International £1,000 for running a full day visit to HMP Grendon in June 2014, involving ten Indian Prison Officers, two Indian Training Academy officials and one Penal Reform International representative. The charge covered the costs of NOMS staff screening and arranging the visit and HMP Grendon’s staff costs for escorting and providing refreshments for the thirteen delegates.</p><p> </p><p>Most of the international visits to prisons that NOMS arranges are at the request of other governments and are not charged. NOMS applies charges in a few cases to cover its costs where, as on this occasion, a private company or non-governmental organisation approaches NOMS as an intermediary and has a funded programme of which the visit is part.</p> more like this

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>On arrival in an establishment, the risk a prisoner presents to others and themselves, and their risk of harm from other prisoners will be assessed. Where appropriate, this will include a Cell Sharing Risk Assessment to assess a prisoner’s suitability to share accommodation. The risk assessment will consider information and intelligence from a number of sources, including known gang affiliations and conflicts if appropriate.</p><p> </p><p>In April 2014, NOMS completed the implementation of a nationally networked intelligence system - ‘Mercury’. Through the Mercury system staff are able to access intelligence linked to prisoners where a prisoner has previously been held in custody, on or in advance of a prisoner’s arrival (where a prisoner is being sent from another establishment). In addition where a prisoner has previously been held in custody, the National Offender Management Information System (NOMIS) will hold warnings to alert staff to particular risks and behaviours.</p><p> </p><p>A number of law enforcement agencies, including the police, regularly share information about prisoners to support the identification of risk. This includes prisoners with gang affiliations and conflicts.</p><p> </p><p>To ensure that prisoners are held in safe, decent and secure conditions, the risks to and from prisoners remain constantly under review. Where risks become known, establishments take appropriate steps to mitigate these risks, which may include relocating a prisoner to another wing or establishment.</p>

When a prisoner becomes unlawfully at large he or she is immediately reported to police to locate and apprehend. Unlawfully at large prisoners are often recaptured and returned to custody quickly, and over 97% of prisoners who absconded between April 2004 and March 2014 have been returned to custody. Absconds are taken very seriously. Re-captured prisoners will be returned to a more secure closed prison and will face either a criminal prosecution or an internal adjudication in prison in front of a visiting judge.
