POA Circulars

66 | 17.08.2015


Further to POA Circular 65/2015, please find a copy of the agreed approach for the supply and Management of Detached Duty Staff to support the requirements during 2015.

Ian Mulholland Acting Director, Public Sector Prisons is content for the attached letter to DDC’s and Governor’s to be promulgated to branch officials to ensure locally this is being enacted.

The Executive will continue to press NOMS to avoid compulsory detached duty as per our Conference Policy. There are clear guidelines from previous circulars advising the POA membership with regards to compulsory detached duty and we would ask that you familiarise yourselves with those circulars.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support and co-operation.

Yours sincerely


General Secretary
