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

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>
