FutureScot's Justice Innovation 2018 Summit: Transforming Justice Through Technology

Technology has become integral to the way justice is delivered across Scotland. Equipping police officers with mobile tablets, body-worn cameras, establishing court hearings via videolink for the most vulnerable, digital forensics, biometrics, in-cell technology and entering criminal pleas online are contributing to a digital transformation leading to a modernised justice system for a fairer Scotland.

In addition, data across the justice sector is becoming more intelligent and accessible through big data analytics and the cloud as we continue moving towards a more collaborative justice system with shared data principles. 

FutureScot's Justice Innovation 2018 Summit is a full-day conference bringing together key stakeholders from across central and local government, courts, tribunals, prisons and the probation services, to explore the challenges faced by the justice system and the opportunities of disruptive technology.

With the new Policing Scotland 2026 strategy and the Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service calling for a ‘radical digital transformation’, reforming the administrative, civil and criminal justice system in Scotland is key to improving the efficiency and delivery of services in Scotland.

With over 70 separate public organisations involved in justice systems at a cost of over £2 billion per year, thousands of individuals come into contact with these systems in any given year, as well as organisations in the voluntary and private sector.

Despite the necessary independence of some bodies and organisations, they share a common aim: to deliver fair and equitable justice for the people of Scotland. Therefore, in order to create savings and improved services it is vital to explore and adopt innovation and digital technologies within the justice system.  

Key areas include:
Hotspots • Smart Devices • Body-Worn Cameras • CCTV • Facial Recognition • Live Streaming • Shared Criminal Justice System • AI Case Building • Digital Fingerprints • Effective Prevention and Partnership Working  • Forensic Science Capabilities • Electronic Service • Media Conferencing   Digital Evidence • Virtual Courts
