The head of the service reports to the Secretary of State for Justice. The main functions of prisons are punishment for crimes, isolating offenders from society and acting as a deterrent from committing offences. Prison officers are those responsible for enforcing rules and keeping order within prisons, supervising prisoners and performing security checks.

    • right to healthcare (including support for a mental health condition).
