Sudbury is an Open Prison.

http://www.derbygripe.co.uk/sudbury.htm  which is a local website and 
contains quite a bit of background.

Sudbury is a Category D Prison which is described as containg "prisoners who 
are trusted enough to wander freely but must show up for daily roll calls"

http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/justice/prison/

The regime is as follows:

"Regime: Includes full-time and part-time education and evening classes, 
workshops, training course (bricklaying, painting & decorating and 
industrial cleaning), farms and gardens, kitchen and a maintenance 
department.

Offending behaviour groups available are Enhanced Thinking Skills and 
Cognitive Skills Booster. There are also special features such as a prisoner 
pre-release course, Business in Prisons, a resettlement scheme (including 
paid and unpaid employment, training and education in the community), a 
listener scheme for prisoners who may be at risk from suicide or self harm, 
an anti-bullying committee."

Unless I am mistaken these could be people who are going out to daily to 
work. The result of their absconding is presumably (if they are caught) that 
they will be sent back to a closed prison.

I would have thought that photographs would generally be issued if the 
prisoner was considered to be dangerous. It is hard to see that any prisoner 
in an Open Prison being put there if they were considered dangerous.

Tim - they have absconded from prison - where they should be - finishing 
their sentence - surely it is in the public interest.
Just an opinion.............by not releasing, surely it may cause anxiety to 
victim's families etc.

It has always struck me that "public interest" and "public curiosity" can 
merge in these circumstances.  The emotive word "murderer" seems to justify 
all sorts of things.  We'll have bear baiting back next.

It is, of course, hugely newsworthy to agitate for the release of the 
pictures, but, if they are what one might term "docile, specific victim" 
murderers it seems to me to be in no-one's interest, least of all the 
public's.

Lord Falconer has criticised the police force for their reluctance to 
disclose the images, and as I was listening to the news on the way back to 
work 20 minutes ago, BBC News announced that the photos would now be 
disclosed. Funny how suddenly they feel able to do this.

I have just read an article about two escaped murderers from Sudbury prison 
and Derbyshire POlice are refusing to release photographs of them as it is 
not in the public interest, their human rights could be breached and the 
Data Protection Act.  Apparently ACPO have stated that photographs should 
only be released in exceptional circumstances where officers believe that 
the suspects may be a danger to the public.

Am I missing something here?
