#Extremism / #UK

The first specialist centre is at HMP Frankland near Durham. Two other centres, which are expected to be at HMP Full Sutton near York and at HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire, are due to open in the coming months and the three centres together will hold up to 28 of the most subversive extremist prisoners in the system.

The government’s plans to isolate Islamist extremist prisoners from the mainstream high security jail population were first disclosed by the Guardian in February last year.

The Ministry of Justice said that more than 4,500 frontline officers have so far received specialist counter-extremism training to identify and challenge extremist views and hope that every prison officer will be trained.
