The blank areas on the table indicate that a prison was not open in that year (Thameside and Northumberland) or that the prison was operated by the public sector at that time (Birmingham). Where data for a particular year is not available, this is indicated in the table. As the provision of this management information is not a contractual requirement, some of the historical data was not captured.

This table displays the population at each privately managed prison for 31st March each year, prison population figures are published regularly.

Operators of privately managed prisons are required to deliver sufficient recruitment and training of staff to ensure they maintain a safe, decent and secure prison as per their contractual obligation. The performance of all providers continues to be robustly managed. We will not hesitate to take action if and when standards fall short.
