Striking prison officers pledge to 'resist military'

Looks like we shouldn't be telling you.

The plans involve Kool Aid.

And you can bet that HMF are fecking thrilled at another opportunity to do the work of unionized fellow 'public servants.'

So after the Ford occurrence external resources are being focused on, don't the POA have enough 'specialised riot trained' officers to deal with possible further outbreaks?

So before someone else jumps in, which establishments are considered at risk for this to be put in Service hands to deal, not that it makes a difference..

BBC News - Striking prison officers pledge to 'resist military'

Soldiers and RAF personnel are being trained in control and restraint techniques as part of a government contingency plan to deal with a crisis behind bars.

Hi does anyone know anything about this? Who is doing the training, and what does it consist of? What's your opinion is on the subject?
Basically, if you bunch of overpaid, underworked, drug suppliers to the inmates, go on strike.

We're going to send in the RLC, whose first job will be to nick your stash & flog it on to the cons.

After we let them in, following a night on the lash downtown.

Hope that helps!

I'm sure the services blokes, who's business it is to put their lives at risk in violent conflict, won't be too fussed about dealing with some pikeys. In fact, the prisoners are at greater risk of getting a kicking by a squaddies they've pissed off.

I did the restraint and arrest course many years ago, many of the techniques used by the army aren't allowed in prisons. The prison service course was inferior to the army one. The solicitors will be rubbing their hands together.

Prison staff ratios can be as bad as two or three officers per wing of 100-150 prisoners. Prison officers are paid less than many nurses and they don't get night pay or overtime.

Who enjoyed it the most, you or the cons? Yes, I'm back. :)

Not exactly the first time; Them famously rescued a prison warder being held hostage at Peterhead jail. A very restrained performance from Them. No fatalities among the prisoners. I believe the worst injury was a con with a broken leg.

IIRC, David "Daredevil" Blunket once seriously considered sending in the Army to brass up a load of rioting prisoners at an HMP in England. Unfortunately, wiser heads prevailed.

Further to that, i think i read a section in Gen Dannatts biog about his bn guarding a prison at one point.

Thank you jarrod248 for a sensible comment. Prison officers can do overtime in certain situations, but the amount you get depends on where you work. You got the staffing levels just about right. I have just spent the weekend with approx 1200 prisoners unlocked all day and less than 46 prison officers on duty. Please remember like myself there are many ex-soldiers in the prison service, and some serving soldiers now may be glad of the job when the leave the army. Just like in the army or any job there will always be people who seem to get the easy jobs, and get away with not doing what they should. I can assure you the life of a prison officer is not an easy one, and you cannot blame anyone for wanting to protect the standard of living they are used too.

"We will do all in our power to desist and resist the armed forces coming into prison. We believe their health and welfare will be at serious risk should they go into any public sector prison because they will not know how to deal with prisoners who can become very violent."
Oh, i imagine the army has an idea...
