Corrections Tech 2020: Technological Trends in Custodial and Community Corrections – IJIS Institute, 2017

This IJIS Institute white paper is a survey of technological trends, current and potential, which are likely to impact the corrections environment in the next 3-5 years. The aim is to provide a ‘one-stop’ high-level overview for the leadership of correctional agencies and their information technology organizations, to help understand how these capabilities are evolving and to anticipate where technology may be applied to address current and future business problems. The paper strives to include both existing technologies that could be adapted or extended to serve the correctional mission, and areas where new technologies may be needed to address gaps.
