External assessment

Her Majesty's Inspectorate is an independent Inspectorate, funded by the Ministry of Justice and reports directly to the Secretary of State.

The role of Her Majesty's Inspectorate is to report to the Secretary of State on the effectiveness of work being carried out throughout all of the public Services in England and Wales. This assessment is in place to ensure that the work being carried out is to a high standard across the board, and that guidelines are being adhered to.

Due to the Island being an independent jurisdiction Her Majesty's Inspectors are invited to inspect the Island's Prison and Probation Service and recommendations made thereafter although not having to be adhered to, as is the case in England and Wales, are nearly always endorsed by the Department of Home Affairs and acted upon.

All HMI reports prepared on Island services are published.

The Prison and Probation Service are inspected independently from each other. Her Majesty's Inspectorate (HMI) is an independent Inspectorate, funded by the Ministry of Justice and reports directly to the Secretary of State.
