Title:
Written evidence from Dr Michael Teague, Senior Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Derby.
Authors:
Teague, Michael
Abstract:
The demographics of our prison population reflect the issues that our penal system must address if it is to be successful in lowering reoffending. The size of the prison population appears to be linked with sentencing behaviour. Prison sentences are getting longer. The current prison population projections appear to accurately reflect our current state of knowledge. Over the longer term, growth is likely in the determinate sentenced population. Safety is the cornerstone upon which rehabilitative intervention in prison is built. Urgent action to guarantee safety in prisons is required. The increasing incidence of self-harm raises continuing concerns. The use of community sentencing options should be prioritised.
