Walton MP Steve Rotheram has praised staff at HMP Altcourse after it was revealed by the Ministry of Justice that the prison was “very effective”.

Steve explained, “The annual prison performance statistics makes for confident reading and I would like to congratulate the staff and probation service that work in and out of HMP Altcourse for the job they have done over the past twelve months.

“Altcourse remains one of the top performing prisons for reducing reoffending and for assisting prisoners with employment and accommodation on release. It was also revealed that the prison received the maximum mark for the safety of its inmates.

“It is imperative that the new Governor of the Prison continues to build on the success of the past year and I want to support him in his efforts in any way that I can. I will begin that process by visiting the prison in the coming months”.
