Lincoln 2020-21 annual report published

This annual report presents the findings of the Independent Monitoring Board at HMP/YOI Lincoln for the year 1 February 2020 to 31 January 2021.

The Board continue to observe the activities of the Governor and his team as maintaining an effective “grip” of the key areas of prison life.  We are pleased to note the progress and significant improvements made over past years.

It is the view of this board that HMP/YOI Lincoln is a well-run prison which, notwithstanding the limitations of its Victorian buildings and the necessary restrictions consequent upon a pandemic, has delivered a humane regime and a significant reduction in violence and self-harm while keeping its prisoners safe.
