Corrections Technology Conference 2023: Tech in Prisons and Corrections

The International Corrections and Prisons Association (ICPA) held its first-ever technology conference in Australia, and it was a resounding success. The conference brought together close to 300 experts and professionals from around the world to discuss cutting-edge innovations in the field of corrections technology.


The two-day conference focused on how technology can improve outcomes for individuals in custody or under community supervision, as well as their families and communities. CTC2023 featured plenaries and parallel workshops that covered various topics, such as digital readiness, data integration, technology for enhancing the safety of women and children affected by domestic violence, and the significance of user-focused design and delivery in correctional transformation projects. Attendees discussed the benefits of in-cell devices, which improve family connections and promote meaningful engagement, as well as how innovative policies and technology can enhance community safety.

The conference emphasized the importance of collaboration between government, research, and industry to develop effective and responsive programs that reduce reoffending and contribute to community safety. In addition to the formal aspects, attendees also spent time networking, building new connections, and collaborating on how to address the key challenges in their respective jurisdictions.

The conference was hosted by the South Australian Department for Correctional Services, and major sponsors included Ericom, Honeywell, Telio Group, Ventia, and livestream sponsors Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, Syscon Justice Systems, Saab, Nuctech Sydney, and Unilink. Thank you to all speakers and attendees! We look forward to continuing our partnership with you in the future.
