Dorchester Prison has been criticised following an unannounced inspection. Inspectors found overcrowding at HMP Dorchester and that staff were complacent about prisoner safety during their visit in July.
A full inspection was carried out in 2009 and 17 recommendations were made.
Eight had not been achieved but overall the report concluded that the prison was safe with excellent staff-prisoner relationships.

HMP Dorchester has responded positively to some key findings from our last inspection but there are some enduring concerns.
