Can an ex prisoner date an ex prison officer

This answer was rated:

can an ex prisoner date an ex prison officer

Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.

There isn't a law against it but it is almost certainly contrary to the prison officer's contract whether the prisoner has been released or not.

Nobody in a prison should be contractually allowed to have relationships with released or incarcerated prisoners.

Can I clarify anything for you?

if the prison officer no longer works for the prison service there would potentially be no problem them dating an ex prisoner then is that correct

basicly want to know if a prison officer has left the prison service is there any law that says they cant date a former prisoner

thank u


That is not correct. That is not what I said.

Contractually there almost certainly would be a prohibition on this and so there would be an outcome.

But if someone no longer works for the prison service they can surely date who ever they chose

They wouldn't be under contract with the prison service therefore are under no obligations,

It depends on the terms of their contract. Probably it covers them for a period after like many employment contracts.

This is quite strictly enforced.
