Coronavirus: Curbs 'a blessing in disguise for prisons'

Sarah Best

14th October 2020

It is reported that prisons in England and Wales are now safer than before coronavirus as a result of changes to rules of mixing inmates.

The Prison Officer's Association (POA) found that staff and prisoners are getting on better and that "separated living groups, put in place to restrict infection, were a "blessing in disguise" and should become permanent."

A reduction in violence and improvements to safety has also led to better staff-prisoner relations.

This article could be used for the Crime and Deviance unit (prevention and punishment).
