We learn that the Prison Service wants to treat prisoners humanely, and it wishes that fewer of them would commit suicide. It's even prepared to do something about this. And it aims to help prisoners lead a useful life after prison by equipping them with the skills to keep on the straight and narrow. The site also contains a dictionary of prison slang –- which will come in handy for television script writers everywhere. And there is a section delivering advice to lifers.
