Settled, Well Run and Safer

:
Serco, which manages and operates HMP Dovegate on behalf of the Ministry of Justice, has welcomed the latest report by Peter Clarke, HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, which says the prison has ‘made some notable progress over the last two years, becoming a safer prison’.

 

The Inspectors reported the prison to be well run and settled, with confident and engaged prisoners and knowledgeable staff. 

 

Commenting on the Report John Hewitson, Serco Prison Director at HMP Dovegate, said: “We are pleased that this Report has found that we have made good progress over the last two years and that it has become a safer, settled prison.

 

"I would like to thank everyone who works here for their efforts to improve the prison; they have all made a real difference. We will now build on this Report and address the challenges that it identifies, particularly in continuing to reduce violence and the availability of drugs."
