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’.
