Independent monitoring of our immigration removal centres (IRC) is vital to ensuring that each centre provides a secure and humane environment for detainees. Robust statutory oversight is provided by HM Chief Inspector of Prisons and the Independent Monitoring Boards, ensuring that detainees are treated with proper standards of care and decency.
