Want to see a small bit of the content from yesterday’s Mid-year Briefing in Atlanta, Georgia. Here are some highlights of Tom Herzog's Luncheon Keynote.
- Business is a relationship and government relies upon its private sector business partners to help foster and promote innovation. IJIS is an organization that helps to promote and accelerate these efforts.
- Public/private partnerships are the backbone of innovation in public sector work and critical to public safety work.
- "Government needs business partners, not vendors. Vendors are people from whom we buy hotdogs, not software and services!"
- 10 Value Propositions for Corrections in 2015-16:
- Body worn cameras - and the data management of the outputs
- Education of incarcerated individuals - using video and tablets as accelerators of innovation in corrections education.
- Family Reunification through video conferencing - another opportunity for tablet use.
- Medical - among the highest cost centers for the corrections industry, EMS and EHR are critical business drivers to help contain and reduce operating costs.
- Complex Analytics - use of new and powerful computing techniques will allow DOC administrators to open previously closed or untapped data sources to provide analytics to better understand prison violence and program success.
- Cell Phone Detection - contraband cell phones continue to be among the preeminent threats to correctional safety.
- Information sharing with LEOs - corrections rich data stores, which include known associates, STGs, visitors, persons called, and money transfers are critical data elements to assist in crime fighting.
- Legacy Renewal/Conversion - many correctional systems are still operating on 1970's computing technology, including mainframe and cool based systems.
- Email for incarcerated individuals.
- Telephones and improved analytics for persons called and recorded calls.
- Five Future Value Propositions for industry work with Corrections:
- Prison population reduction and the value proposition of community supervision with enhanced technology.
- Bail Reform and how technology can be used to help ensure safe pre-trial, pre-adjudication release to the community.
- Smart Apartments that make use of new monitoring techniques to help facilitate community supervision.
- Group Sourcing software to help enlist public input into new initiatives and place-based policy initiatives.
- Public/Private partnerships that make use of new performance-based funding options to include ideas like Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) and Purpose-based economic alternatives.
