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.

The principal means is by way of a positive recommendation from the independent Parole Board, which falls to officials either to accept or reject on behalf of the Secretary of State, under agreed delegated authority and in accordance with policy agreed by the Secretary of State. However, ISPs may also apply to progress to open conditions without a positive recommendation from the Parole Board being sought, where they can show exceptional progress in reducing their risk. Each application is determined on its merits under agreed delegated authority by officials in the Offender Management and Public Protection Group in the Ministry of Justice.</p><p> </p><p>Determinate sentenced prisoners are assessed for their suitability for open conditions by experienced prison staff with relevant input from offender managers and other professionals within the prison. The assessment will consider the extent to which the prisoner has reduced identified risks and any intelligence or other information that provides evidence of the prisoner’s trustworthiness for conditions of very low security. Determinate sentence prisoners should not generally be moved to open prison if they have more than two years to serve to their earliest release date, unless assessment of a prisoner’s individual risks and needs support earlier categorisation to open conditions. Such cases must have the reasons for their categorisation fully documented and confirmed in writing by the Governing Governor.</p><p> </p><p>All those located in open conditions have been rigorously risk assessed and their risks have been deemed manageable in open conditions.</p><p> </p><p>The public have understandable concerns about the failure of a small minority of prisoners to return from temporary release from open prison. Keeping the public safe is our priority and we will not allow the actions of these offenders to undermine public confidence in the prison system. The number of temporary release failures remains very low; less that one failure in every 1,000 temporary releases and about five in every 100,000 temporary 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 now no longer eligible for transfer to open conditions if they have previously absconded from open prisons, or if they have failed to return or reoffended whilst released on temporary licence, unless there are exceptional circumstances.</p>

Furthermore, there have been no infraction proceedings at the European Court of Justice and no findings against the UK in the European Court of Human Rights about this issue in that time period.</p><p> </p><p>The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) provides razor wire and barbed wire as part of construction and refurbishment projects on its custodial estate. It is deployed most often at the top of perimeter fences and fences which form partitions within the grounds of prisons. It forms one of a number of security measures which prevent prisoners scaling fences either to breach the perimeter or to enter hazardous and prohibited areas of a prison</p><p> </p><p>The MoJ works with the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) to ensure that its proposed use would not present a health or safety hazard to prisoners, members of NOMS staff, visitors to a prison or members of the public.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Security is paramount within prisons and it is important that the risk of any potential key compromise is addressed as quickly as possible in order to protect the public. When a key/lock incident is reported an immediate investigation is undertaken to assess the risk and unless it is clear that security has not been compromised, then locking mechanisms and keys will be replaced and/or other necessary remedial action will be taken.</p><p> </p><p>A range of procedural and physical measures are used to assist in the secure management of keys in prisons. These increasingly include electronic and biometric systems.</p><p> </p><p>The information requested is provided below.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1 - costs of partial/full relocking of prisons due to loss of keys from May 2010 - 29 October 2014:</p><p> </p><p>14/05/2010 Swaleside £95,430</p><p>21/06/2010 Glen Parva £208,329</p><p>04/11/2010 Warren Hill £101,301</p><p>20/12/2010 Ashwell £15,576</p><p>24/10/2011 Birmingham £499,000 <ins class="ministerial">(Paid for by G4S)</ins></p><p>09/01/2012 Maidstone £5,847</p><p>28/02/2014 Lindholme £40,286</p><p>08/05/2014 Haverigg £32,882</p><p>21/07/2014 Highpoint £14, 933</p><p> </p><p>Table 2 – number of reported incidents of lost keys from April 2010 – 31 March 2014:</p><p> </p><p>2010/11 - 62</p><p>2011/12 - 67</p><p>2012/13 – 73</p><p>2013/14 – 35 (* see note below)</p><p> </p><p>* Note: a change in the reporting requirements for key/lock incidents from April 2013 has resulted in a lower “lost keys” figure for 2013/14 in comparison to the three previous years. In addition to keys “lost”, the figures for the three previous years include keys inadvertently taken out of prisons and subsequently returned, but the figure for 2013/14 includes only keys lost, not those inadvertently taken out and returned.</p><p> </p><p><em>The figures quoted have been drawn from live administrative databases and may subsequently be amended. Due care is taken during processing and analysis, but the detail is subject to inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.</em></p>

star this property answer text <p>Security is paramount within prisons and it is important that the risk of any potential key compromise is addressed as quickly as possible in order to protect the public. When a key/lock incident is reported an immediate investigation is undertaken to assess the risk and unless it is clear that security has not been compromised, then locking mechanisms and keys will be replaced and/or other necessary remedial action will be taken.</p><p> </p><p>A range of procedural and physical measures are used to assist in the secure management of keys in prisons. These increasingly include electronic and biometric systems.</p><p> </p><p>The information requested is provided below.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1 - costs of partial/full relocking of prisons due to loss of keys from May 2010 - 29 October 2014:</p><p> </p><p>14/05/2010 Swaleside £95,430</p><p>21/06/2010 Glen Parva £208,329</p><p>04/11/2010 Warren Hill £101,301</p><p>20/12/2010 Ashwell £15,576</p><p>24/10/2011 Birmingham £499,000 <ins class="ministerial">(Paid for by G4S)</ins></p><p>09/01/2012 Maidstone £5,847</p><p>28/02/2014 Lindholme £40,286</p><p>08/05/2014 Haverigg £32,882</p><p>21/07/2014 Highpoint £14, 933</p><p> </p><p>Table 2 – number of reported incidents of lost keys from April 2010 – 31 March 2014:</p><p> </p><p>2010/11 - 62</p><p>2011/12 - 67</p><p>2012/13 – 73</p><p>2013/14 – 35 (* see note below)</p><p> </p><p>* Note: a change in the reporting requirements for key/lock incidents from April 2013 has resulted in a lower “lost keys” figure for 2013/14 in comparison to the three previous years. In addition to keys “lost”, the figures for the three previous years include keys inadvertently taken out of prisons and subsequently returned, but the figure for 2013/14 includes only keys lost, not those inadvertently taken out and returned.</p><p> </p><p><em>The figures quoted have been drawn from live administrative databases and may subsequently be amended. Due care is taken during processing and analysis, but the detail is subject to inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.</em></p>
