As the Justice Secretary has announced, we are investing over £100m in staffing, and will recruit an extra 2,500 prison officers to increase safety and support prisoners to reform.

We will apply for planning permission to redevelop the site of HMP & YOI Glen Parva. If we successfully achieve planning permission at the site, HMP & YOI Glen Parva would close and be replaced by a new, fit for purpose, facility.
