Does prison work?


Yes - it helps to keep the public safe and put some people off committing crimes.


No - prisons are unsafe for both inmates and staff, and UK re-offending rates are high.


Maybe - it's certainly a punishment but it punishes an offender's family too.


Prison can work as a space for rehabilitation but more funding is needed to better implement this approach more widely.
