Her Majesty’s Prison Service is part of the St Helena Police Directorate and protects the public by keeping in custody those people committed by the court and provides a safe and decent custody facility.  We work closely with the Offender Management team to rehabilitate prisoners to enable them to lead law abiding and useful lives both in custody and on release.

HMP Jamestown is a small prison situated in the town centre which was built in 1826.

The Prison team consists of a Prison Manager, a Deputy Prison Manager, four Senior Officers and 12 Prison Officers.
