Offenders in prison are tech users too – or at least they should be.
How do we help offenders in prison?
Up to 60% of a Prison Officer’s time at work is taken up dealing with information requests from prisoners and helping them with paper-based administration. Significant efficiency savings can be made on the delivery of prisoner services by using technology. It’s time for our prisons to move from bureaucratic, paper-based systems towards integrated digital services that encourage a new kind of interaction with prisoners; empowering them to do things for themselves, to become more actively involved in their rehabilitation and to develop life skills that will benefit them on their return to their community.
