Today I am very proud to be standing alongside Simon Weston OBE as he and I, along with other experienced professionals discuss the subject of veterans in the UK criminal justice system. Of course I am not an expert in delivering offender services for veterans. My contribution to the large audience is about how partnering and technology can fuse together in order to deliver better results for what is the single biggest occupational group in custody today.
Sadly the systems for multi-agency working together around them as offenders (and victims) are not fit for 21st century working and the risks it imposes, let alone the costs, which are just unacceptable in this climate. Doesn’t this group of people (and others of course) deserve a more joined up justice service?
The old ways of working as illustrated in the picture on the right need to be switched out for more cost effective fully integrated solutions and that is what I’m going to concentrate on today. And modernising justice is clearly a high priority for the government too. Lets hope that we can help them change for the better as a result of today’s conference.
