Progress in the
Penal System (PIPS)

A. An effective and humane penal system (2019)

In 2017, IPRT developed indicators against which to assess each PIPS standard on an annual basis. This year we use these indicators to assess progress against these standards within the last 12 months.

The six key standards that IPRT believes would help support the overarching long-term vision of an effective and humane penal system are outlined below.
