The Expert Group on Technology in Probation had its first meeting in March 2017 in Stockholm (Sweden). The meeting focused on development and implementation of applications in probation practice. The meeting was attended by Professor Fergus McNeill (Glasgow University, Scotland) and experts from Sweden, Finland, Northern Ireland (United Kingdom), the Netherlands and Latvia. The aim of the Expert Group is to improve co-ordination and co-operation between CEP members regarding the wide spectre of ongoing technological innovation projects in probation. It provides the opportunity for lead experts of CEP members (policy developers, project managers, ICT specialists etc.) to meet and discuss today’s challenges, solutions and share ideas for further development of the technological domain in probation.
It’s planned that the Expert Group meetings will be organised once a year.
