Sharing information and encouraging dialogue between our colleagues across the global corrections community is an important part of tackling the complex issues concerning the prevention and control of Covid-19 in prison settings.
Our Information Exchange Meetings (IEM) provide a virtual roundtable environment for prison/correctional professionals to come together and discuss their practices and procedures, share tips and advice and to create new relationships with colleagues for future exchanges and support.
Groups of individuals who share a common background are convened in small groups of up to ten people for meetings up to 90 minutes.
The next series of IEM meetings are being developed. We invite colleagues to share their suggestions of topics for discussion.
