PPO Annual Report 2017

This is the PPO’s sixth annual report. As he leaves office he looks back at his time with pride at the work of his office and sadness in the limited improvements in safety and conditions in prisons. During the last year, self-inflicted deaths in custody rose 11%, other types of death rose 23% and eligible complaints rose 9%. These statistics, particularly when combined with high levels of violenceand incidents of significant disorder over the year, indicate “a prison system still very much in crisis”.   The full report can be found here:
