The MoJ is looking to reemploy 2,000 prison officers who recently took voluntary redundancy, in response to the rising number of prisoners in Britain’s jails. Former staff have received a letter, seen by the Observer, explaining that Her Majesty’s Prison Service Reserve has been set up to “respond to particular short-term pressures in prisons”, which “may be due to unforeseen increases in prisoner numbers or as a response to the operational pressures which surface from time to time”. The MoJ has so far spent £50m on redundancy payments at an average cost of £35,000 per officer
