Two-Year Olds Forced to Have Fingerprints and Mug Shots Taken

September 23, 2012

Talk about an absurd idea!

PRISON staff from scandal-hit security firm G4S took the fingerprints and mugshots of children as young as two who visited inmates at a new jail.

The practice was stopped only after a string of complaints to jail bosses at HMP Oakwood,  a privately run prison in Staffordshire that holds 1,605 offenders. 

The Mail on Sunday has discovered that over-zealous staff forced children who were visiting family members to pose for pictures and have electronic fingerprints taken, which were then stored on a computer at the prison.

The practice, which has drawn strong criticism from prison groups, continued for four weeks  earlier this year until prison governors held an inquiry and put a stop to it.
