The coronavirus pandemic has forced criminal justice agencies to reflect on how to manage the prison population and how to protect public health. With a combination of cramped conditions, poor sanitation and overcrowding, the prison estate has been described as an epidemiological time bomb: the perfect breeding ground for the spread of infectious diseases.
Join experts from The Parole Board for England & Wales, De Montfort University, HMPPS and Unilink, as they explore what business as usual might look like going forward and how the pandemic could help us modernise the justice system.
This webinar is just a part of what the GovNet Justice series has to offer.
Join us in September for the Modernising Criminal Justice conference, to meet our speakers, network with peers and continue the discussion around how we can drive transformation in criminal justice and stop the cycle of reoffending.
