This presentation asks the question – can we identify and define professional practice among prison officers? It draws heavily on the work of Alison Liebling and others, and outlines the importance of the concept of ‘dynamic authority’ in delivering professional custodial care practice. Recent survey data on research among Irish prison service employees undertaken by Share and Timmons is presented. Finally, some concluding thoughts are offered to the reader.
