Description: PECS represents a critical service that joins up functions across a very wide and diverse group of stakeholders including the Courts, Prisons and the Police. Prison escort contractors are responsible for the movement of prisoners from prisons and police stations to courts, their care and security whilst in the court custody area and in the dock and their transfer from courts to prisons and other nominated locations at the conclusion of court business. The service handles over 800,000 prisoner movements of all types including young people and women prisoners per annum. Following Contract Award on 16th March 2011 and 'Go Live' on 29th August the service is now delivered through four separate contracts, operated by two contractors for up to 7 years. The new PECS contracts include the previously separate Inter Prison Transfer Services for the first time and help ensure that prisoners are more efficiently located ahead of court appearances. New arrangements have been made with HMCTS to allow prisoners to be delivered to courts throughout the morning, rather than all at once. This will make much more efficient use of escort vehicles and will save money. Agreement has also been reached to allow the transportation of different kinds of prisoners in appropriately designed new escort vehicles which will also significantly reduce the amount of separate escort journeys required. The current escort areas have also been reconfigured to align more closely to the revised regional structure and to improve efficiency. The Project was closed on 15 August 2012 and will no longer report to GMPP in future.
