A report of the full inspection carried out at HM Young Offenders Institution Polmont between 22-30 October 2012.

Executive Summary

There are 74 recommendations in this report which need attention. Overall,however, HMYOI Polmont has many advantages which will ensure that the

establishment will improve and go from strength to strength. Firstly, it is a relatively modern establishment; conditions for young offenders are sufficiently good and the lower population means that ‘overcrowding’ is not an issue. Secondly, by

transforming the management, oversight and culture of the establishment, the staff will be able to contribute in a much more positive and holistic way, not only inside the establishment but also with external partners, thus improving throughcare. With training and direction this can be achieved. Lastly, by using current good practice

from other prisons, the regime and the timetabling of activities could be radically improved and this could be done quickly. The sum of these improvements will ensure that HMYOI Polmont is central to the very best practices within the Reducing Reoffending Programme.
