(English) Ireland: decrease in the number of assaults by prisoners on Irish prison by 37pc to less than two per week on average

On April 2016, Europris publicized the goal reached by the Irish prison management and proudly announced by the Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald. The reduction in assaults has been attributed to several factors including a 20pc reduction in prisoner numbers.

The introduction of enhanced security measures by the IPS, such as hand-held metal detectors and security screening machines, are also believed to have resulted in the reduction of assaults.

Enhanced protective equipment including stab vests have also been made available for appropriate escorts.
