    Police called to Ford open prison after rioting

    BBC News - Police called to Ford open prison after rioting

    Specialist police and fire services are at Ford open prison near Arundel, West Sussex, after a riot broke out, the Prison Service has confirmed.
    In a statement, the Ministry of Justice said that around 40 prisoners began smashing windows and setting fires in some buildings.
    A spokesman said prison service staff were forced to retreat.
    He added: "We have no reports of any injuries to staff or prisoners at this stage."
    The inmates involved also set off fire alarms at the prison after the disturbance began at around midnight on New Year's Eve going into New Year's Day.
    The spokesman said: "Specialist teams of prison officers have been called in to deal with the incident."

    I read somewhere that there was only two guards on duty for the 40 prisoners. Sounds bloody stupid if that was true.

    3 to 4 jail deputies on duty here for anywhere from 120-130 inmates. Gotta love it.

    I think it was actually worse than that, there were several hundred prisoners who didn't join in that the 2 PO and 4 OSGs had to look after as well.

    I wouldn't fancy dealing with a group of people that big as a double crewed unit without back up.

    I am not suprised at the ratio. Pretty standard from what I've heard.
