Prison Adjudications

It has been brought to the attention of the Executive that local managers are putting undue pressure on members not to place prisoners on report.

It is the absolute right of all members to place a prisoner on report if they believe they have acted inappropriately and/or breached prison rules.

It is not acceptable for Governors to issue across the board behaviour warnings or to use an IEP review for any act of indiscipline.

The NEC urges all members to exercise their right and place prisoners on report for all alleged wrongdoings.

Please draw the contents of this circular to all members.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support.

Yours sincerely

STEVE GILLAN
General Secretary
