Irish Prison Service Annual Report 2011

15 Aug

The IPS published their latest annual report recently. The good news is that prisoner numbers are leveling off – the average daily number in custody was 4,390. However, this is overshadowed by a 12% increase in the number of women been sent to prison, along with a 10% rise in the number of people serving short sentences. The report also doesn’t appear to contain any information on the number of deaths in custody in 2011. Given the DoJ’s announcement in April regarding new mechanisms to create more transparent investigations into deaths in custody this seems like a major oversight.
