Player, E. and Roberts, J.V. and Jacobson, Jessica and Hough, Mike and Robottom, J. (2010) Remanded in custody: an analysis of recent trends in England and Wales. The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice 49 (3), pp. 231-251. ISSN 0265-5527.
This article present statistics on remand in custody in England and Wales. Currently, these statistics are spread across a wide range of government statistical publications, making it challenging to determine trends. We demonstrate that decisions to remand in custody are not a major contribution to prison overcrowding. However, it is important from perspectives both of human rights and economy to keep trends under close review, and to search for better ways of reducing the remand population in prisons. At the end of the article we review a number of strategies designed to reduce the remand population in this jurisdiction.
