The Irish Prison Serviceoperates as an executive agency within the Department of Justice and Equality. It is headedby a Director General supported by a number of Directors. The Service is a key component inour country's criminal justice system ensuring safer community life and employs approximately3,200 personnel.Our MissionProviding safe and secure custody, dignity of care and rehabilitation to prisoners for safercommunities.Our VisionA safer community through excellence in a prison service built on respect for human dignity.Our ValuesTEAM WORK – We achieve more by working together than we can as individualsworking aloneINTEGRITY – We must always have the courage to do the right thing, the decentthing, even when no one else is watchingPOTENTIAL – Everyone has the potential to be a better person and we actively seekto provide staff and those in custody with opportunities to realise and achieve thisSAFETY – We actively contribute to maintaining an environment in which staff andthose in our custody feel emotionally and physically safe and ultimately, contribute toa safer communitySUPPORT – We actively seek to provide supports to staff and support rehabilitationof those in custodyThese values foster and support the courage to make a difference in all that we do and toensure that the Irish Prison Service is:• An open, inclusive, diverse and proud organisation which focuses on teamwork andcollaboration and encourages supportive and positive relationships.• An ethical and accountable organisation where the highest standards are expected,promoted and adhered to and which is open to external scrutiny and adheres to human rights.• A competent organisation where staff are equipped with the necessary skills andcompetencies to reach their potential, behave appropriately and have a clear understanding oftheir role in the organisation.• A supportive organisation which promotes the safety and the physical and mental health ofall staff, where staff are valued and recognised and there is a focus on “those that do” ratherthan “those that don’t”.• A rehabilitative organisation which supports positive change, improved resettlement andreintegration opportunities for prisoners through targeted action and interagency collaborationand support.• A more aware organisation where the rights and needs of the citizen, especially victims, arealways supported, recognised and listened to.The Prison EnvironmentA prison is not a usual environment for any human being. It is a complex and dynamicenvironment which has the potential to be stressful for both prisoners and for staff. Thenormalisation of the prison environment is largely dependent on effective management and onthe development of appropriate relationships by our prison staff with our prisoners. Prisonsoperate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. A list of all Prison Estates canbe found in Appendix 1.Our PrisonersWhile each prisoner’s personal life story is unique, many of our prisoners have mentalillnesses, behavioural issues and addictions. They have been subjected to sexual, domesticand social abuse, and/or have neglected their own physical health. Some prisoners havecommitted serious crimes. Some have come from disadvantaged and minority groups insociety and some have had little or no opportunity or encouragement to participate ineducation or training programmes.Our StaffIn Ireland, recent years have required Prison Officers to undertake increasingly complex anddiverse tasks, balancing their traditional security focussed role with a renewed emphasis onfacilitating rehabilitative interventions that address offending behaviour. Prison Officers arethe frontline staff who interact most with prisoners on a daily basis and as a result, have thepotential to positively influence prisoners to engage in training, education, psychology andcommunity in-reach services within the prison system. Knowledge of the legal frameworkwhich governs the management of prisoners and skills such as searching and restrainttechniques are important competencies for prison staff, however, the most important aspectsof operating as an effective Prison Officer is the capacity to relate to and engage withprisoners, act with professionalism, tolerance and humanity and the ability to role modelpositive social behaviour.
