On 18 November 2022 an Expert group meeting on Technology in Probation took place online. Experts from 7 different EU jurisdictions (Finland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales, Germany and Czech Republic) gathered to start working on guidelines for a hybrid working model. The online meeting has served as a preparatory kick-off meeting to brainstorm and define key principles of working models in order to draft the first version of the guidelines for the upcoming face-to-face meeting that is taking place in the spring 2023.
The group work focused on discussing following:
- general needs of defining hybrid/smarter/blended supervision
- aspects of qualitative and effective supervision
- digital solutions
- data protection
