This study examines the process in relation to current leave policy, how this is implemented and whether there are specific problem areas. The following issues are discussed: what purpose does leave policy serve within the context of the prison system? Is it still in line with a modern and functional framework for the application of sanctions? What are the risks? And how does current official policy relate to implementation in practice?
