2017 International Survey of Correctional Services




'The purpose of this survey was to gain a better understanding of the challenges various correctional organizations around the world are facing and the transformation strategies that have been used to resolve them. Results showed that there were many similarities in the issues leading to transformation and the plans undertaken in the last year to address them. Many of the participating correctional organizations, for example, referenced common challenges concerning illicit goods (e.g., drugs, cell phones) entering institutions and highlighted their use of technology to detect and eliminate contraband. As well, the majority of organizations cited challenges identifying and managing security threat groups and outlined how they addressed this concern with increased dynamic security and the training of specialized intelligence staff. These results show that organizations find resourceful ways to mitigate and/or eliminate the impact of common challenges'--Summary of findings, p. 13.
