About HMP Stocken
HMP Stocken was built in 1985 and is a Category C prison housing adult male prisoners. In January 2003, an inspection report from�Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons�praised Stocken Prison, stating that it was an example for other jails to follow. Inspectors found "mutually respectful relationships between staff and prisoners" which created a "decent, safe and ordered environment." The prison also earned praise for its pre-release programme, which included housing advice and personal appointments for inmates.
