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.

The New Digital Age – Tablets and Wi-fi The digital age is fast permeating into the prison environment, bringing with it significant advantages for both prisoners and staff. For prisoners, access to digital tablets provides them with greater rehabilitation opportunities and improved communications with those that support them in their efforts to reform. For staff, access to digital tablets can reduce costs through improving their efficiency in operational processes, providing training opportunities, enhancing communications and accessibility to pertinent information that supports them in their challenging role. Recent advances in secure Wi-Fi has negated previous security concerns around technology in prisons and in doing so, has created cost effective opportunities in […]

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 […]

W4-09 – Marijke van Genabeek

A Positive Life Climate as a Protective Factor In Dutch juvenile justice the development of the juvenile is essential. Due to the secured environment in juvenile institutions however, there’s a delicate balance between control and flexibility. Control is needed to lock the juveniles in and to manage the risk of unwanted behavior while flexibility is required to practice new acquired social competences and to prepare them for reintegration in society.

Leading change in the delivery of Psychology Services in the Irish Prison Service The Irish Prison Service (IPS) Psychology Service was reviewed in 2015 by an independent consultant, Dr. Frank Porporino (www.irishprisons.ie).  The review observed that the service was “neither embedded nor supported,” not sufficiently accountable to the IPS, and that there was an over-reliance on “longer term, process oriented, psychotherapeutic approaches.”  The report provided various recommendations which I am leading on to ensure a Psychology Service that is centre-stage in supporting the IPS, is accountable to the IPS, and is more accessible to the client base.  This presentation will summarise: a) where the Psychology Service was, b) the process […]
