The Irish Prison Service (IPS) has released its 2015 Annual Report. The report features statistics relating to the profile of the prison population in Ireland.
Also included is a progress report of the Service’s three-year strategic plan, with details on progress made to the end of 2015.
The statistics contained in the report offer some cause for concern in relation to short-term prison sentences, committals for the non-payment of fines, and the imprisonment of young offenders.
