CRIME IN PRISON REFERRAL AGREEMENT

Please draw to the attention of all POA members the agreement between HMPPS, the Police and the Crown Prosecution Service contained within the Crime in Prison Referral Agreement.

This agreement has been shaped by the National Executive during detailed discussions and we believe highlights your rights when you are assaulted at work. Please ensure your senior managers adhere to this agreement.

We advise that all assaults against staff are reported to the Police.

Your safety is non-negotiable.

Yours sincerely
