Department of Correctional Services to implement electronic case management system

The Department of  Correctional Services is to implement an electronic case-management system to replace the current paper-based one.
 
The aim is to support effective offender management.
 
State Minister in the National Security Ministry, Ruddy Spencer, says with assistance from the Organization of  American States (OAS), an electronic case-management system was identified in Brazil, which can be replicated in Jamaica with minor adjustments.
 
Spencer said it is expected that implementation of  the system will improve monitoring and treatment of  offenders.
 
Implementation is slated for completion in the current financial year.
 
Meanwhile, the State Minister said the Ministry intends to install a high-technology closed-circuit television (CCTV) system in all correctional and remand centres.
 
He says this will significantly improve the Department of  Correctional Services monitoring capability and act as a deterrent to people smuggling contraband.
