Evaluation of digital technology in prisons

“In the last decade, Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service has invested in installing technology widely in prisons in England and Wales. The technology has included: in-cell telephony, self-service kiosks and in-cell laptops, and mobile devices for prison staff. This report focuses on the impact of the technology on: the communication of knowledge within prisons, prisoner wellbeing and confidence using IT, prisoner relationships inside and outside prison, prison violence, and staff job satisfaction and workload.”
