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>Please see the attached table showing financial penalties for 2013/2014 and quarter 1 of 2014/2015</p><p>It is important to note that performance points are essentially about operational efficiency, and at no point has public safety been at risk.</p><p>The Contract for HMP Altcourse sets out a strict performance framework, consisting of prescriptive performance targets and performance points to be levied against the Contractor for failure to meet prison standards. Performance points are proportionate to the severity of failure and, depending on the total number of points accrued for the performance quarter or year, liquidated damages are applied against the Contractor in accordance with the Contract.</p><p>It is important to stress that the Contractor’s performance is monitored and managed closely by MoJ staff on a daily basis and failure by the Contractor to meet performance targets results in performance points being applied. Any emerging or sustained performance failures are discussed in detail with the Contractor in order to rectify performance shortfalls as quickly as possible.</p><p>It is fair to say that HMP Altcourse achieve the majority of their contractual targets with proportionately low levels of performance points and financial remedies applied as a result.</p>

star this property answer text <p>There are no plans to return HMP Altcourse to public ownership. As a contracted-out prison, Altcourse has generally been a high-performing establishment. In the most recent performance ratings (published 31 July 2014), it was rated Level 3 (out of four levels, of which Level 4 is the highest). The National Offender Management Service is working closely with the contractor to ensure that issues in relation to recent events at the prison are fully and swiftly addressed, and will continue to monitor the prison’s progress closely.</p> more like this

There is much more to do to ensure prisons are places of decency, hope and rehabilitation.</p><p>Violence in prisons has increased in recent years. The nature of offenders currently in custody and the widespread availability of novel psychoactive substances have both contributed to making prisons less safe. There is no single, simple solution to the problems we face but we are making progress.</p><p>We have launched a two year Violence Reduction project to reduce violent incidents and the propensity of violence in prisons. This project will help us to gain a better understanding of the causes and characteristics of violence in prisons and to strengthen the handling of this. We are also trialling the use of body worn cameras in prisons, developing better case management of individuals identified as being at heightened risk of harming others, introducing a psychologically based assessment tool to understand better local factors driving violence in prisons, and training sniffer dogs to detect novel psychoactive substances. We have also made it an offence to smuggle novel psychoactive substances into prison. However, ultimately the only way to reduce violence in our prisons is to give governors and those who work in prisons the tools necessary to more effectively reform and rehabilitate offenders, which we are determined to see through.</p>
