9:50 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Meeting the Demands of High-Needs Inmates through Prison Design and Development

  • Discussing the relationship between preserving human rights and prison architecture
  • How should  safety and security be preserved without infringing on inmate rights?
  • How does traditional prison design fail to accommodate and care for high-needs inmates?
  • In what ways can the physical environment of a prison adapt to meet the needs of ageing and disabled inmates? How can prisons be designed to meet the needs of juvenile and other vulnerable offender groups, and aid in their safety and well-bring?
  • How can project managers take into account meeting the variety of stakeholder needs during the research and development phase of a prison extension, new-build or re-development?

4:30 PM Improving Outcomes for Prisoners in Transit by Utilizing the Information Carried by the Transporting Vehicle

This session will discuss the benefits of tracking inmates during transport. By retro-fitting transport vehicles with computer systems, custodial services will be able to better communicate between the vehicle and the destination during transit, enabling tailored responses to each vehicle arrival.

  • Create vehicle barcodes that can communicate information to prison software upon arrival
  • Understand how downloading data directly into vehicles can assist with the logistics of prisoner transferral
  • Respond more urgently to transfer needs, for example send injured or unwell inmates straight to healthcare facilities without having to dock first

9:50 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Safety and Security: Where should the line be drawn?

  • Should education and rehabilitation programs be aligned with a prison’s designated security level?
  • How can technology be used to provide both a secure environment and better opportunities for inmate reform?
  • Where the line should be drawn between safety and privacy. Should current practises be challenged?
  • Novel strategies for reducing contraband inflow, with demonstrated results

4:30 PM Implementing Software systems to Track and Manage Inmates During Transport
