Following the incident of Concerted Indiscipline at HMP Maidstone, the POA will fully cooperate with the investigation that will follow the deployment of NTRG teams and the opening of gold command.

The POA will insist that the contribution of Prison staff in resolving the incident without injury to staff or prisoners is recognised. We will further insist that the views and observations of the Maidstone staff are represented in the investigation report.
