Report on an unannounced follow-up inspection of Manawatu Prison
On 22 and 23 May 2017, Inspector Emma Roebuck and Inspector Sue Silva (to whom I have delegated authority to carry out visits of places of detention under COTA) visited Manawatu Prison (the Prison) to follow up on recommendations made in a previous report (January 2016).
During the visit on 22 and 23 May 2017, the Inspectors visited all units and spoke with a selection of managers, staff and prisoners across the site.
There were 23 recommendations made following the visit in January 2016. These are detailed in the report.
