It has been brought to the attention of the NEC that OSG’s and Operational Band 2’s are being deployed to staff and supervise prisoners held in segregation units day and night. This is not acceptable and out with policy.

Staff working in these units must be selected and trained in accordance with the policy.

Local Committees are advised to ensure this policy stops forthwith and if management refuse a local dispute should be raised.

The Executive are taking this matter forward through the Security and Custody Whitley and further information will be promulgated in due course.

If any local Committee need advice on this issue, they should contact their NEC representative or Cronin House.

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

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
