Prison Me No Way - Jersey

Prison Life

  • To give students a real insight into the reality of what happens inside a Prison and correct some of the myths shown in films and on the media.
  • To go through the ‘booking in’ procedure when a prisoner first arrives at reception, to illustrate how the Prison Service has a ‘duty of care’ with regards to inmates.
  • To ensure that students understand that it is not just ‘bad people’ that are sent to prison – anyone can go to prison if they have made a bad choice and committed a crime.
  • To explain a little about daily life inside a prison and the opportunities afforded to prisoners which they can use in a very constructive way to turn their lives around.
