Behind the Walls of Your 'Local Nick'

Tue 10/11/15 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the walls of your ‘local nick’, HMP Winchester?

We all have an idea of what prison is like, from news stories or fictional dramas, but what is it really like to live, or work, behind bars? Are prison staff really able to help prisoners to change, or is it sufficient to ensure they do not escape? Are drugs and violence an inevitable component of inmate culture? Is there, as some commentators suggest, a ‘crisis’ in our prison system? 

This is your chance to hear from, and ask questions of, HMP Winchester’s Governor in Charge, David Rogers, in conversation with University of Southampton Lecturer in Criminology, Dr Alisa Stevens.
