HM Prison Service Officers can quickly generate records of visitors to jails
It was alleged at the Leveson Inquiry that two officers at high-security prisons took illegal payments from national newspaper journalists. Giving evidence, Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Sue Akers said Scotland Yard had analysed stories possibly linked to payments to two senior prison officers at separate prisons. Neil Garnham, QC for the Metropolitan Police Service, admitted: “We frankly admit that there have been incidents which led to a plain perception of cosiness between particular senior MPS officers and particular journalists.”
