Prison Service Order 0900 (PSO 0900) sets out policy and guidance on the security categorisation and allocation of prisoners. This ensures that all prisoners are placed in a security category consistent with managing their risks in terms of security and control and that the public is properly protected.

Work to update PSO 0900 is currently under way with a view to publication next year. Revisions will consolidate into one document changes made to categorisation policy over the last few years, and will restructure the document so that the guidance contained within it is more readily accessible to operational users.
