People Before Profit Prison Policies

Summary

People Before Profit calls for:

  • A fundamental change in the perception of inmates as citizens capable of rehabilitation, rather than as dangerous and irredeemable.
  • Rehabilitation rather than retribution to become the official impulse.
  • A restorative-justice programme, in which offenders meet their victims as part of facing up to their crimes and rehabilitating.
  • Deprived city areas with high numbers of offenders to receive greater social investment.
  • A move towards Open prisons.
  • An increase in Temporary Releases.
  • More drug treatment centers inside and outside prison.
