Risks and Opportunities: the perspective of a Prison Governor - Our prisons have been sometimes described as out of sight and out of mind, however within our prisons are microcosms of society, communities and places where there is both risk and opportunity. From the perspective of the Prison Governor it is important that both are managed well. There are critical obligations around the maintenance of safety, decency and security and some of the challenges that can arise within prisons. Equally there is a need to retain an enduring focus on creating a community within a prison which is pro-social, positive and focused on rehabilitation and reform.
