star this property answer text <p /> <p>As at 30 June 2014, there were 24 determinate sentence prisoners held in open conditions with more than two years left to serve before their earliest release date and 18 indeterminate sentence prisoners in open conditions with more than two years left to serve before their tariff expiry[1].</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Those prisoners with at least two more years left before their earliest release will either be serving a determinate sentence of four years or more, or an indeterminate sentence with a minimum tariff of two years or more. The earliest date on which an indeterminate sentence prisoner (ISP) may be released from custody is on completion of “tariff” – that is, the minimum period to be served in custody, as determined by the Court, for the purposes of retribution and deterrence.</p><p>Progression to open conditions is never automatic and only follows a satisfactory assessment of the prisoner’s reduction in risk to a level that is manageable in conditions of lower security. The assessment will take account of issues including successful completion of any offending behaviour programmes identified as essential to the risk reduction process and any security intelligence or other information that provides evidence of the prisoner’s trustworthiness for open conditions. For determinate sentence prisoners, this assessment is carried out by an operational manager in the holding prison. For ISPs, it generally involves a recommendation by the independent Parole Board.</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 such conditions.</p><p> </p><p>When a prisoner moves to the less rigid structure of open conditions an assessment 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 can be important components for successful reintegration in the community and therefore a mechanism to help protect the public by reducing the likelihood of reoffending.</p><br /><p>[1] Please note that these figures do not include prisoners held in open conditions in non-predominant function open prisons, nor those held in open sites that are part of multi-site establishments performing different functions, nor those held in small (under 50 place) open units at predominant function closed prisons. Women and young adults are included in the figures.</p>

star this property answer text <p>JTAC raised the threat level on 29 August from SUBSTANTIAL to SEVERE. The increase in the threat level is related to developments in Syria and Iraq where terrorist groups, including ISIL, are planning attacks against the West. ISIL <br>is a clear national threat to the UK, as it is a global threat to our international partners and the region. We believe that more than 500 individuals from the UK have travelled to Syria since the start of the conflict. It is estimated half of these have returned. We judge that a significant minority of UK extremists currently fighting in Syria are affiliated with ISIL. British citizens fighting with proscribed terrorist organisations would clearly pose a threat to the UK should they return. Such <br>individuals are among our primary counter-terrorism concerns.<br><br>The Government is taking steps to counter this unprecedented threat. On Wednesday 26 November, we introduced the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, in order to extend the powers available to our law enforcement and intelligence <br>agencies. This Bill will ensure that we can: disrupt the ability of people to travel abroad to fight, as well as their ability to return here; enhance our ability to monitor and control the actions of those in the UK that pose a threat; and combat the underlying ideology that feeds, supports and sanctions terrorism. It includes provisions to:<br><br>The powers set out in the Bill are essential to keep up with the very serious and rapidly changing threats we face.<br><br>This legislation will provide additional tools to compliment work already underway to tackle the threat from ISIL under a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism led strategy. <br><br>We must take action at home – but we must also have a comprehensive strategy to defeat these extremists abroad. This involves using all the resources at our disposal – humanitarian efforts, which Britain is already leading, to help <br>those displaced by ISIL’s onslaught, and diplomatic efforts to engage the widest possible coalition of countries in the region as part of this international effort. At the UN, we are leading the process of condemning <br>ISIL, disrupting the flows of finance to ISIL and forging a global consensus about preventing the movement of foreign fighters.<br><br>This strategy also involves political efforts to support the creation of a new and genuinely inclusive government in Iraq and to bring about a transition of power in Syria that can lead to a new representative and accountable government <br>that can take the fight to ISIL.<br><br>We are determined to defeat the ideology of all forms of extremism, not just violent extremism. So we are banning preachers of hate, proscribing organisations that incite terrorism and stopping people from inciting hatred in <br>our schools, universities and even our prisons. For those individuals who are at risk of radicalisation, agencies such as the police and local authorities work together to assess the nature and the extent of the risk and, where <br>necessary, provide an appropriate support package tailored to individual needs. And we are working with industry to remove more extremist online material than ever before to protect those British young people vulnerable to becoming <br>radicalised. Since the start of this government, the Counter-Terrorism Internet Referral Unit has secured the removal of 65,000 items from the internet that encouraged or glorified acts of terrorism. More than 46,000 of these have been <br>removed since December last year. At present, content relating to ISIL, Syria and Iraq represents around seventy per cent of the Unit’s caseload.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
