Prisoner Ombudsman for Northern Ireland – Annual Report 2016-17

The Prisoner Ombudsman’s Office was set up in 2005 following the Steele review which was commissioned because of concerns about staff and prisoner safety in Maghaberry Prison. Inter alia it suggested that establishment of such an office would “make a valuable contribution to defusing the tensions which are bound to arise in prisons in Northern Ireland. This contribution is fulfilled through two specific functions: Investigate and report on Complaints from prisoners and their visitors; and Investigate and report on Deaths in Custody (DiC). The Prisoner Ombudsman’s powers regarding investigation of complaints by prisoners or visitors to prison establishments are currently set out in Rule 79 of the Prison & Young […]

Call for Papers – Advancing Corrections Journal, Edition #4 – 2017

Each issue of Advancing Corrections focuses on a particular Theme. For the fourth issue, we would like to build on the Theme of our 19th Annual ICPA Conference and highlight ‘Innovation in Rehabilitation’.

Advancing Corrections Journal, Edition #3-2017

This Edition focuses on the theme of ‘innovative approaches for service-delivery to offenders’. In a recent Strategic Planning session, the ICPA Board endorsed the promotion of evidence-informed practices as one of ICPA’s top three priorities, and so the theme is timely. Modern correctional agencies need to assess the merits of an increasing number of potential innovations (e.g., adopting new technology for services delivery to offenders), or changes in existing practice (e.g., assessment, case management, intervention, or other service-delivery frameworks). What will most likely improve performance is not always clear — is there strong enough evidence to support the change in the context of other agency circumstances, would the new approach […]
