PRODUCTION OF PRISONERS UNDER PARAGRAPH 3(1) OF SCHEDULE 1 TO THE CRIME (SENTENCES) ACT 1997
1. The provisions for the production of prisoners formerly contained in section 29 of the Criminal Justice Act 1961 were repealed and re-enacted by the Crime (Sentences) Act 1997 and are now contained in paragraph 3(1) of schedule 1 to that Act.
1.1 Paragraph 3 permits the Secretary of State to direct that prisoners be taken to any place in the UK or Channel Islands where it is desirable in the interests of justice (or for the purpose of any public enquiry). Subject to the guidance set out below, Governors / Directors of Contracted Out Establishments are authorised to exercise these powers on behalf of the Secretary of State where the police request the production of prisoners.
1.2 This PSO cancels and replaces I.G. 18/96.
MANDATORY: IG 18/96 must be cancelled.

PRISONERS COVERED BY THIS AUTHORITY
The following prisoners are covered by the authority:
a. A person remanded in custody in connection with an offence;
b. A person serving a sentence of imprisonment;
c. A person not falling within (a) or (b) above who is detained in a prison.

2.1 Exceptions to delegated authority: For requests for production involving Category A prisoners, including potential and provisional Category A prisoners, Governors / Directors of Contracted Out Establishments must refer to Prisoner Management Section of DHSP. For Prisoners held in Protected Witness Units (PWU), the Governor of Full Sutton PWU must refer to DHSP and the Governor of Hull PWU and Parkhurst PWU must refer to the National Operations Unit (NOU). Governors / Directors of Contracted Out Establishments must also refer, to the NOU, requests for production of prisoners who, while in neither of the above groups, raise particular security concerns or are notorious.


EFFECT OF PRODUCTION
3. A Governor / Director of Contracted Out Establishment should only authorise production under paragraph 3(1) of Schedule 1 of the Crime (Sentences) Act 1997 if they are satisfied that such a production is desirable in the interests of justice or for the purpose of any public enquiry.
MANDATORY: Governors / Directors of Contracted Out Establishments must fully satisfy themselves that production is necessary in the interests of justice or for the purpose of any public enquiry.
3.1 When a prisoner is produced to the police they shall, be kept in custody while being escorted, while at the place to which they are produced and while being returned to the prison, or other institution, in which they are required by law to be detained. This means that the prisoner must remain at the designated police station for the period between being taken to and being returned to the prison. The police may not remove the prisoner to any other place without the prior, written, consent of the governor. For requests for production, other than to a designated police station, governors should seek advice from the Police Advisors Section.

3.2 Governors / Directors of Contracted Out Establishments may consider it desirable to exercise these powers in particular to enable the prisoner:

MANDATORY: The form at Annex 1 to the PSO is the only acceptable application to produce under paragraph 3(1) of Schedule 1 to the Crime (Sentences) Act 1997.
4.1 Governors / Directors of Contracted Out Establishments must satisfy themselves that:
(a) The production is necessary in the interest of justice or for the purpose of any public enquiry.
(b) The purpose of the production is clearly understood.
(c) If the requested production is for more than one day, that this is fully justified and clearly documented.
(d) Any production for more than a day must be reviewed by the Governor / Director of Contracted Out Establishment. On each review the Governor must satisfy themselves that continued production is justified.
MANDATORY: Governors / Directors of Contracted Out Establishments must satisfy themselves that any production is authorised only for the shortest period of time necessary in the interest of justice or for the purpose of any public enquiry.
