Research conducted for the Howard League and PGA by Dr Julie Trebilcock, Imperial College, London.

Dr Trebilcock worked with a team of retired prison governors in three adult male prisons holding prisoners serving short prison sentences of 12 months and under.  Interviews were conducted with 44 prisoners and 25 prison staff.

This primary research was supported by an extensive online survey of PGA members and other key stakeholders.
