A programme of work is currently being constructed to strengthen the Prison Service's approach to tackling staff corruption.
There are no plans to publish the recommendations from this report but they form part of the work being taken forward to strengthen the Prison Service's approach to tackling staff corruption.
The Professional Standards Unit is responsible for anti-corruption policy, and governors and area managers, via their area and local professional standards managers, are responsible for its application.
A training package focusing on the use of intelligence-gathering techniques is offered to all area professional standards managers, local professional standards managers and their deputies.
At organisational level regular tasking meetings are held in establishments to discuss intelligence received about staff corruption. These meetings may involve the prison's police liaison officer. At a strategic level, the police continue to offer the Prison Service advice on how to tackle staff corruption.
This will be considered as part of the programme to strengthen the Prison Service's professional standards approach.
