    Tag Information

    Any offender with tagging licence conditions must write into the Director requesting permission to visit. This will be considered and a formal written response will be send to the offender clarifying the decision. If cleared to visit the offender must be in possession of the licence on arrival. The conditions will be assessed prior to entry to ensure the offender is not in breach of conditions by entering the Establishment. If the offender is not in possession of the licence they will not be granted access to visit until the conditions have been seen.
