Justice in the Digital Society

What are digital transformation opportunities in forensic mental health care practice?

The Custodial Institutions Agency (Dienst Justitiƫle Inrichtingen; henceforth DJI) is responsible for the detention, day-to-day care, and rehabilitation of convicted individuals in the Netherlands and operates under the Ministry of Justice and Security (Ministerie van Justitie en Veiligheid; henceforth JenV). DJI acknowledges that, increasingly, technology plays a role in the day-to-day activities of the organization and has impact on central tasks. A challenge is to anticipate which technologies will permeate the working field and which will fade away, how such technologies might influence day-to-day activities, and how they may influence the organization as a whole. The aim is to inspire a mindset change at the clinic regarding technological innovation in the working field, through applied research and the development of a prototype in close collaboration with DJI and the clinic Oostvaarders.
