star this property answer text <p>The information requested is provided in the attached table. As per the answer to PQ 184996, please note that offenders may appear both within the caseload figures of court orders (including community orders and suspended sentence orders), and post-release supervision.</p><p> </p><p>The National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies work closely with other agencies to support offenders in the community. When an offender being supervised by Probation dies, the Probation provider must examine the circumstances of the death and identify areas to improve practice. While we work extremely closely with each offender before and after release to help them find the support they need, we do not have sole responsibility for caring for these offenders. We are clear, however, that they should receive the same level of care as other members of the public.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Our national, regional and prison-level intelligence teams and our Security Risk Unit build a picture of how various forms of contraband, including drugs and mobile phones, enter our prisons. In March last year we further augmented this capability by investing £14 million in intelligence teams and new serious and organised crime teams to work closely with the Home Office, National Crime Agency and police forces.</p><p> </p><p>The research paper <em>The Demand for and Use of Illicit Phones in Prisons </em>published in 2018 also explains that illicit mobile phones can enter prisons in a number of ways. This can be viewed <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/726874/The_demand_for_and_use_of_illicit_phones_in_prison_web_.pdf" target="_blank">here</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Our security counter-measures then assist us to stop contraband from entering prisons, retrieve it and thereby frustrate illicit trade and further criminal activity within the prison. Most recently we have moved to draft specialist search teams into prisons across England and Wales, and invested £7 million to enhance security through scanners, improved searching techniques and phone blocking technology.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In common with all Government Departments, the Ministry of Justice has considered what impacts there might be on its institutions of leaving the EU without a deal, including on prisons.</p><p> </p><p>Preparations are underway to ensure we are ready for this scenario. This includes working closely with the Department of Health to make sure that the supply of health products to prisoners is not disrupted; ensuring that our food and retail contracts have alternative arrangements in case of disruption through ports; and co-operating with other Government Departments to prepare for contingencies such as potential traffic disruption in the South East.</p><p> </p><p>Delivering a revised deal negotiated with the EU remains the Government’s top priority. This has not changed. The Government is accelerating no deal preparations to ensure the country is prepared for every eventuality. It is the responsible thing to do. As part of cross-Whitehall preparations for a no deal scenario, all Government Departments are considering what resources are required to mitigate any potential impacts and to ensure that businesses and citizens are sufficiently prepared for all eventualities of Brexit.</p>
