The Investigator, Summer 2019, Issue 3


Welcome to your latest edition of the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman’s quarterly newsletter, “The Investigator”.


We include in this edition:

  • a preview of what will be included in our Annual Report, due to be published in the autumn,
  • an update on a new system for allocating complaints investigations among our teams. This will mean that for each prison, probation area, and detention centre, there will be one team here at the PPO investigating complaints,
  • our quarterly statistics, and
  • a further preview, this time for our pending Learning Lessons Bulletin on the response to medical emergencies.


Once again, please feel free to contact us with any questions, hints or suggestions.
