PRISON POLICY

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.
