The Strategic Plan from the Inspector of Prisons, which is the first of its kind, sets out the vision for the office of the Inspector over the period up to and including 2023, identifying the actions required to realise these. The strategy has two key elements; an Inspectorate focussed on the delivery of a comprehensive programme of prison inspections and the pending requirements in respect of Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture.

The vision of the Inspectorate is “A robust, preventative regime for the inspection of prisons in Ireland, and the investigation of Deaths in Custody, or other investigations relating to the management or operation of a prison, recognised as meeting or exceeding national requirements and international best practice”. Underpinning the Vision are four ambition statements. These objectives, which relate to the current legislative role of the Office, include the following:

1. Provide a robust, preventative regime of independent inspections of prisons, which promotes equality and protects human rights.
2. Provide a robust regime for investigating Deaths in Custody and / or any matter arising out of the operation or management of a prison.
3. Provide public assurance regarding the handling of complaints.
4. Build public confidence in the work of the Inspectorate.
