POA Press Releases

PR 100 24 Feb 2015

Wrexham Prison

The POA welcome the news that Wrexham Prison when built in 2017 will remain in the public sector under Her Majesty’s Prison Service.

Steve Gillan General Secretary of the POA stated;

“The POA believe that all Prisons should be in the public sector and we welcome this announcement. It would appear our campaigning has worked and our efforts to convince Ministers have come to fruition that public sector prisons are the way forward. This is a hard fought victory for the POA. I would now like to see all prisons coming back into the public sector, perhaps this is the turning point”
