From 27th until 29th May the first Technology in Corrections (TIC) conference took place in Barcelona (Spain), hosted by the Justice Department, government of Catalonia and jointly organized by CEP, EuroPris and ICPA. The event was a big success with just over 200 delegates from 34 different countries, attending to think and share their views on the role that technology could play in the future world of prison and probation.
The conference offered a platform for both public and private sector participants to have discussions on three themes: Offender Management, Improving Operational Security and Offender Participation. 11 companies presented their solution and entered into a dialogue with the participants to increase the understanding of their solution to the challenge.
