PPO Learning lessons bulletin - Complaints from young people in custody

The Prison and Probation Ombudsman have published their learning lessons bulletin on complaints from young people in custody.  This bulletin focuses on three aspects of the management of young people in custody: adjudications, use of force, and segregation. Adjudications are the internal disciplinary procedures in YOIs. They are essentially designed for adult prisoners and can be confusing and intimidating for young people. The bulletin emphasises the important role that advocates can play in ensuring a fair hearing. The bulletin can be found at :  /wp-content/uploads/2017/02/PPO-Learning-Lessons-Bulletin-Young-people-in-custody-Feb17.pdf
