Justice Questions: Body worn cameras for Prison Officers

The dramatic rise in violent attacks on prison officers (a 23% rise in the last 12 months alone) is undermining the safety of our prisons and we need to see the roll-out of body worn cameras increased to keep our officers safe.

These attacks coincide with the significant rise in the use of drugs such as Spice in prisons – also known as New Psychoactive Substances. The Government needs to get a grip of the situation if not more violent attacks will take place.
