little evidence to support that contention to solve the current crisis behind bars . Prisoners matter too!

The Howard League for Penal Reform has today (Wednesday 22 March) responded to the government’s plans to build four new prisons.
Andrew Neilson, Director of Campaigns at the Howard League for Penal Reform, said: “The government is pinning a great deal of hope that its capital investment in new prisons will help to solve the current crisis behind bars, with very little evidence to support that contention. Prisons across the country are afflicted with problems of deaths, violence and drugs – modern and old alike.
“The real driver behind these new prisons will be cost. Today’s announcement confirms that the Ministry of Justice is still committed to building larger prisons which can make economies of scale, even though smaller institutions can be safer and more stable.
“Ultimately we will only transform the prison system if we do something about a prison population which has doubled in the last twenty years. Until politicians grasp the nettle that we simply jail too many people and for too long, then governments will continue to preside over prisons that shame the nation.”
The Howard League for Penal Reform is the oldest penal reform charity in the world. It is a national charity working for less crime, safer communities and fewer people in prison.

You have to think outside the box. Never question your probation officer's authority. You must write to the deputy director of probation in your area. Put forward your argument and back it up, refering to factual inaccuracies and where necessary refer to this psi. Never expect the first response to be what you want, where they deviate from your subject refer them back to your points. Avoid discussing your challenge with your PO. Where her/his action affects others like your family advice yourfamily on your action. They may also wish to write to the deputy director. As a 'service user' of probation think of it like you have been mistreated by a member of staff in a shop. You wouldn't complain to the assistant who mistreated you would you? Go to the boss. If you write to the director he/she just denigrates the job to the deputy by the way. Hence why I said write to them. Always date your letters and put a suitable title. If you don't receive a reply within 1monrh chase with another letter refering to your first. I would never advice someone to make a challenge unless it is serious. But sometimes you must.
