Screwed is the inside story of the collapse of Her Majesty's Prison Service told from the front line. Ian Acheson served as both officer and governor in a twenty-year career that saw him move from the landings to the boardroom.

During that time he witnessed Her Majesty's Prison Service, the uniformed organisation he was proud to serve, collapse into a hopeless and helpless bureaucracy presiding over feral penal dustbins warehousing the worst of human failure.

This hard-hitting account looks at the politics and the operational decision-making that have driven our prisons to rock bottom, where extreme violence, indolence and victimisation are normalised.

Concluding that the situation is not beyond repair, however, Acheson outlines how a new corporate culture and mission can achieve a much-needed revolution in the way the service is run.

Ian Acheson served as both an officer and prison governor. In 2015 the then Secretary of State for Justice, Michael Gove, asked him to lead an independent review into prison extremism which laid bare a corporate culture of ineptitude, secrecy and arrogance that threatened national security. He now works nationally and internationally advising governments on countering violent extremism and prison reform.
