The number of band 3-5 officers in post, by Prison Service Structure each year since 2010 can be found in the attachement: Table 1 (headcount) and Table 2 (full time equivalent).

The number of prison officers has increased by more than 4,000 in the last four years and we have committed to hiring an extra 5,000 officers by the mid-2020s.
