My Third Annual Report is a reflection of inspecting year 2011–12. It focuses on the main issues I have seen whilst formally inspecting, and informally visiting all of Scotland’s prisons. The Inspectorate also looked at every Legalised Police Cell (LPC) in Scotland. During the reporting period we have also inspected all cells in Sheriff Courts and prisoner escort arrangements.

Executive Summary

My Third Annual Report is a reflection of inspecting year 2011–12. It focuses on the main issues I have seen whilst formally inspecting Barlinnie, Kilmarnock, Dumfries, Glenochil1 and Cornton Vale and also informally visiting all of Scotland’s prisons and speaking to prisoners, staff, prisoner families as well as those Third Sector organisations which bring so much to helping prisoners. The Inspectorate also

looked at every Legalised Police Cell (LPC) in Scotland and reported in December 2011 that five out of nine could be considered for closure. During the reporting period we have also inspected all cells in Sheriff Courts and prisoner escort arrangements. This Annual Report will look at a number of issues,most notably female offenders and Cornton Vale. In last year’s Annual Report I commented on ‘The Context of Young Offending in Scotland’ and, this year, I am able to report on some follow-up visits I have made to look at this issue.
