About the UK Home Office

The Home Office (HO) is the ministerial department in the Government of the United Kingdom that is responsible for immigration and security across the country. Therefore the HO is also responsible for the UK police force, fire and rescue services along with the national visa services. Although the Home Office administers government policy on security related issues such as drugs and counter-terrorism, its responsibility for Her Majesty’s Prison Service was transferred to the Ministry of Justice in 2007.
