HMP The Verne has been assessed for detaining individuals for immigration purposes in terms of its size, location, facilities and level of security.

Alterations are being carried out to make it suitable for use as an Immigration Removal Centre including provision of facilities for detainees and their visitors. Once formally re-roled it will be used to assist removal of those who have no right to remain in the UK.
