Unilink is at Technology in Corrections: Challenges for the Future Conference. The event takes place from 15th to 17th May in Prague, Czech Republic.
About the Event
The European Organisation of Prison and Correctional Services (EuroPris) in cooperation with the International Corrections and Prisons Association (ICPA) and the Confederation of European Probation (CEP) organises the second Global Corrections Digital Technology Conference, ‘Technology in Corrections: Challenges for the Future’ and is hosted by the Czech Prison and Probation Services.
Prison administrations and probation services are currently facing a number of challenges. On one hand the emphasis is on professionalization, efficiency with more individualized and client-centric approaches towards the offender, and a strong focus on preparing re-entry into society. On the other hand, special attention has to be given to the importance of guaranteeing public security and finding the right balance and responses to new evolutions in society such as radicalization. Doing all this within the restraints of a difficult economic and budgetary context constitutes a difficult challenge. As in all sectors, we believe that technology can help us with these challenges. Even more, we believe that innovation is a necessity if we want to find sustainable solutions to our problems.
