Capturing Silver Linings in a Dark Cloud: COVID-19 as a catalyst to transformation in the criminal justice landscape

The coronavirus pandemic has brought about unprecedented challenges for the criminal justice system. With a combination of cramped conditions, poor sanitisation and overcrowding, the prison estate has been described as an epidemiological time bomb: the perfect breeding ground for the spread of infectious diseases. 

The global pandemic has forced criminal justice agencies to reflect on how to manage the prison population and how to protect public health. With 321 confirmed cases of coronavirus among prisoners and 293 among staff, we shall explore the emergency measures designed to contain the spread of the virus inside our prisons and beyond.  Over 4,000 offenders are due for early release, so will the crisis tilt the scale in favour of probation over prisons? 

Headline Partner:

Sit on a panel of experts from The Parole Board for England & Wales, Unilink, HMPPS and De Montfort University as we discuss: 

  • The measures taken across the world, including the suspension of short sentences and the early release of prisoners   
  • In the absence of proper testing for coronavirus and basic protection measures such as sanitisation and social distancing- what meaningful steps have been taken to date? 

  • What does a risk assessment for prisoners look like?  
  • What provisions are in place for vulnerable offenders including older prisoners, immuno-compromised individuals and pregnant women?  
  • How has lockdown affected overall offender and staff wellbeing?
