Third annual report of the UK's NPM 2011/12 published

The HM Inspectorate of Prisons have published the third annual report of the UK's National Preventative Mechanism (NPM) for 2011-12.  NPM consist of 18 organisations designated to fulfil the UK's obligation to independently monitor the treatment of and conditions for people in state detention.  The purpose of monitoring is to prevent ill-treatment in all places of detention from prisons to children's homes to secure hospitals.  The report addresses the use of force and restraint, which has been highlighted as a key concern by NPM members, escorting of detainees between places of detention and contains a number of recommendations to improve services.
