Since opening in Spring 2017, there have been 626 adjudications at HMP Berwyn.

Discipline procedures are central to the maintenance of a safe, decent and rehabilitative custodial environment. They are provided for by the Prison and Young Offender Institution Rules, which require adjudications to be conducted lawfully, fairly and justly. Independent Adjudicators are District Judges or Deputy District Judges who attend prisons and young offender institutions when necessary to hear those adjudication cases which are deemed to be sufficiently serious. If found guilty, such cases may merit a sentence of additional days to a person’s time spent in custody. Only Independent Adjudicators can make an award of additional days. The most serious offences will be referred to the Police.
