unstar this property answer text <p>Detached Duty (DD) is one of the sensible and proportionate measures we take to ensure we run safe and decent regimes in prisons and respond appropriately to any operational issues that arise. The deployment of staff between prisons on DD is a regular and normal part of prison resourcing; the number of Prison Officers deployed on DD varies from one week to the next in order to reflect operational circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>Annex A attached shows the number [and cycle] of staff deployed to the six of the prisons in the 10 prisons project (Isis, Hull, Moorland, Nottingham, Ranby and Wormwood Scrubs) for a period since 2015. Detached Duty is allocated on a cycle (4 week average) rather than on a month by month basis.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
