COVID-19 has radically altered criminal justice system forever. We have seen digital adoption accelerated across our courts, prisons and probation services and have seen organisations having to evolve, adapt to change and embrace new technologies, all of which were enabled by having the right digital infrastructure in place, however there is a long way to go.
Join our panel of experts to:

The Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales is examining how crime, fear of crime and other threats to public safety are changing and assess the ability of the police to respond. This far-reaching independent review set for release in early March 2022 aims to set a long term strategic direction for the police service so that it is better able to tackle crime in an age where it is being transformed by new technology and wider social change.
Join our panel of experts to discuss and examine the findings and aims of the strategic review and debate what must be done so that policing can adapt to the digital environment, ensure it can pursue criminals, protect the vulnerable, and reduce crime.

With more than 30 ransomware attacks every second. The MOJ needs a new approach to managing and protecting data. This is especially relevant as more information is fragmented in the multi-cloud world and open to more points of access for collaboration and sharing.
In this session Veritas explores the Ransomware Threat to UK Public sector and best practices to stay ahead of the Cyber Criminals, who look to do harm in critical infrastructure.
Morning seminar sessions offers you an excellent opportunity to learn, network and gain valuable insights on a variety of themes across the justice sector. More seminar details to follow from the following:
The dawn of the internet and mass proliferation of technology has brought seismic and irreversible change to the world over the past 20 years and crime and justice is no exception to this. With this considered is it really possible for justice and digital justice to be recognized as two distinct concepts and can we continue to use the tools of yesterday to meet the challenges of today?
To answer this we’ll look at the profound shift in the nature of crime and justice over the past 20 years with a focus on how forces such as The Metropolitan Police and the Police Service of Northern Ireland have transformed the way that they collaborate with the wider criminal justice ecosystem and the public to ensure they are up to the challenge of law enforcement in the 21st century.

The panel will share their experience of the practical steps that can make data interoperable across the diverse Justice Sector, such as offender passports that help achieve a meaningful understanding of offending individuals and not just an order or case. This will cover points of interest to a wide range of Justice stakeholders, from Police; Courts; Probation; Sentencers and Policy and will provide insight into the long-term benefits of interventions, coupled with the foundation for building a model of offender behaviour with the opportunity to ask questions as part of a closing Q&A.
Imagine fast and complete data sharing to support evidence based decision making. A better experience for victims, witnesses and all of the protagonists in every case.
Data is the key in each case in the justice system to understanding the story, however, the current process for sharing data is complex, resource intensive and time-hungry.
In this seminar we will be joined by North Yorkshire Police to co-present a powerful case study known as Project Shield, where CGI worked in partnership with North Yorkshire police, justice agencies, charities and academia to put in place more effective measures to better protect victims and survivors or domestic abuse by joining up sources of data.
We will then take lessons learned to explore what would mean in practice to join up data across justice and what is the future for the justice system?
This seminar will explore how, by working together, we can address the big social issues within the Criminal Justice System. We will look at how Partnerships across all aspects of criminal justice, and beyond, can improve outcomes for society, citizens, communities, and those who commit to supporting victims, supporting rehabilitation, and those who wish to reform.
The seminar will cover modernising of medication management in prisons, based on a Proof of Concept implementation of an innovative solution in collaboration between Serco, PPG (the healthcare provider) and the suppliers: Traka and Unilink Software.
There are many health inequalities between the prison population and the general population. For example, 42% of men and women in prison suffered from depression, compared to just over 10% of the rest of the population.
Custodial settings have experienced increased medication requirements for prisoners and projections suggest the volume of medications will continue to rise.
Prisoners often experience problems getting the medication they require. These include flash points around medical hatches, prisoners being bullied to handover their medication and prisoners having to choose between recreational activities or picking up their medication. These poor prisoner experiences when collecting medicine cause unsafe environments not just for prisoners but for all involved, including prison officers and healthcare professionals.
Technology solutions can facilitate flexible collection to create a secure environment for prisoners, healthcare professionals and prison staff to manage medications safely.

Join this seminar and discuss and learn:
Meeting the needs of offenders with neurodiverse conditions is becoming an increasingly important part of the Criminal Justice System agenda, with the 2021 evidence review of Neurodiversity in the Criminal Justice System identifying serious gaps in screening, resourcing and staff training, and the Prisons Strategy White Paper recognising the need for greater tailoring of prison services to better support people with ADHD. An estimated 25% of offenders have ADHD, a five to tenfold prevalence increase compared to the general population, yet the condition remains critically undiagnosed in prisons. Evidence shows that ADHD is linked to an increased risk of critical incidents (specifically verbal aggression and damage to property) and greater likelihood of re-offending, and the cost to the Criminal Justice System of untreated ADHD is estimated at £11.7m annually. However, if ADHD is recognised and managed appropriately, there could be a reduction in criminality of 32% in men and 41% in women.
Join our expert panel discussion to explore why it is so important that people with ADHD are recognised and have access to appropriate care, and the impact this can have across the Criminal Justice System.
