W4-15 – Leo Milstein

Improving Secured Prison Leave for Community Integration Administrations realize the importance of offenders’ rehabilitation as part of the penal system. However they face many challenges in ensuring the protection of communities from criminal elements when temporarily release from custody or removal from prison is required, for work, study, medical, legal or other activities. Until recently, logistics, technical and operational barriers prevented the secure temporary release of Inmates into the community. A recent technological development enables to overcome these barriers. This innovative solution presents an optimal, reusable mean to allow offenders the required temporary freedom while maintaining close supervision of their exact whereabouts at a cost effective manner.

W4-13 – Hugh Greathead

Starting Restorative Conversations in Prisons around the World For restorative justice to become a normal response to crime, those delivering restorative programs need to be able to provide high quality services on a large scale basis.

W4-10 – Ayelet Porat

Countering Terrorism and Crime in Prisons with Technology – Driven Intelligence We all know that prisons worldwide are a factory for terrorists and criminals. The problem is compounded because these inmates often exhibit ‘model’ prison behavior and are hard to spot. Corrections facilities and society must find ways to identify the terrorist and criminal plots within the prisons, before it is too late. Intelligence-Based Corrections is critical to accomplishing this. There is a treasure trove of crucial information to be derived from inmate phone calls. Technology-driven intelligence can make a tremendous impact in preventing and solving terror attacks and crime, and it can be implemented in a cost-effective manner. At […]
