Guernsey prison inmate numbers at record high


he number of inmates at Guernsey's prison reached a record high in 2012, according to the governor's report. The prison roll peaked at 127 in August, 12 short of the maximum that can be held at Les Nicolles Prison. Despite the increasing numbers, crime and anti-social behaviour within the prison had dropped, said Governor Dave Matthews.He said this was because of an increasing emphasis on work and education.
