Jayne Price. When is a child? The ill considered transition to adult prison.
Oct 6th, 2021 by lockedupliving
We are fortunate that there are people looking at parts of our criminal justice system which otherwise can be easily overlooked. Jayne Price is one of those people and here she describes her work studying the process of transition for young people moving from a Young Offenders Institution to an adult prison.

Jayne joined the Department of Social and Political Science, Chester University as Lecturer in Criminology in September 2018. In October 2019 she completed her PhD at the University of Liverpool. The project was a CASE studentship with Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. The research aimed to ‘explore pathways and transitions between juvenile and adult penal institutions’. Through speaking to young people who experience the transition, key stakeholders, observations within the institutions alongside analysis of relevant literature and HMIP survey data, the research findings contribute to the on-going collective reflexive learning of policy and practise. The original research sought to establish the most effective and progressive way of supporting young people through the transition.
