Prison population figures revealed

Number of inmates peaked at more than 120

In the eight years that the Isle of Man prison has been at Jurby, the maximum number of prisoners at any one time has been 121.

That prison population has been reached twice.  In May 2011 and later that same year,  in December.

The fewest number held was in April and May last year with 75 prisoners.

The latest figures show a prison population of 93. 

These details are in a Tynwald answer given to Onchan member, Peter Karran.
