New Measures to Crack Down on Prison Violence

The Daily Mail reports on new measures being introduced to crack down on levels of violence in prisons.

A new joint protocol produced by the Prison Service, Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and Association of Chief Police Officers will detail how prisons, police and the CPS can work together to secure prosecutions of prisoners who commit serious assaults on staff or other serious crimes such as hostage-taking or arson .

There were 3,427 assaults on staff between June last year and June this year. While 25% were referred to police, the majority were dealt with by adjudication.
