Fears prisons could be run by gangs as thousands of guards quit


Recommended Posts

The staffing crisis in UK prisons has been laid bare as new figures show thousands of the most experienced officers have quit the service, leaving jails vulnerable to increased violence, instability and control by gangs.

Analysis by The Independent shows that some 60 per cent of officers across UK prisons had more than 10 years of experience in 2017, but that figure had plunged to around 30 per cent by June this year. More than 1,000 of these more experienced prison officers have been lost in the past year alone.

At the same time, the proportion of officers with less than three years of experience has risen from 27 per cent in 2017 to more than 36 per cent.

Maybe they need to replace them with robots.  Everything from feeding to bath time can be automated.  If a riot occurs, let the machines sort it.  If there are deaths, at least no bigotry or racisms will be the cause ;)
