  • The running of prison and probation services
  • The rehabilitation services for prisoners leaving prison
  • Making sure support is available to stop people offending again
  • Contract managing private sector prisons and services such as the Prisoner Escort Service and electronic tagging


HMPPS’ long-term priority is to support the justice system and prevent future victims by cutting crimes and reducing re-offending.

How HMPPS works

They work with a wide range of other agencies, organisations and providers.

They work with independent organisations to run prisons, provide prisoner escort and electronic monitoring, and other offender services.

They also work with other government departments to provide health, education and training services to those in custody. They work with charities and social enterprise organisations to develop and carry out programmes to reduce re-offending.

They also work with independent inspectors, local councils, youth offending teams, courts, police and other enforcement agencies to meet their responsibilities and support the justice system.
