Digital innovations in the criminal justice system

The overall aim of the project is to co-produce a series of digital materials with service users in custody.  

The programme of work has a number of different applications which are currently being explored:

  • Exploring the use of a virtual service user in the recruitment of prison psychologists: testing the application of role play skills.
  • Training new prison staff to improve communication and problem-solving skills using a virtual prisoner experience.
  • In-cell activity for people in custody who wish to develop problem-solving skills using animation.
  • Use of a problem-solving animation to support the prison service ‘Thinking Skills Programme’.
