Article: Her Majesty´s prison estate is now smoke free (2018)

Earlier this year Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) concluded one of its most challenging projects when the final two closed prisons in England & Wales went smoke free, bringing the total number to 103 closed smoke free sites – the largest smoke free prison estate in Western Europe. The project was rolled out against a background of operating difficulties, including increasing custody risks, population pressures and use of psychoactive substances.
