The material was developed under the project ‘Strengthening the protection of the rights of sentenced persons’ and is intended to enhance and enable prison staff to promote good practice in the practice of Dynamic Security.
While the initial focus in the manual is on the concepts of dynamic security and pro-social modeling, the Working Group recognised that Dynamic Security’ in not a ‘programme’ but is an approach to managing prisoners, and the training material includes professionalism, risk assessment, teamwork, interpersonal skills and managing meetings.
This Manual does not seek to replace any formal training that already takes place for those who have responsibility for working in prisons but to complement it. It is a Training Manual, which is meant to raise awareness and improve practice. It included general principles and specific European Prison Rules and CPT Standards.
