The International Institute for Justice and Rule of Law (IIJ) organised a workshop on CT Prison Intelligence on 3-5 July 2017 in Valletta, Malta with the support of the US State Department for 30 practitioners from Albania, Cameroon, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, the Maldives, Malta, Niger, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia and the Republic of Macedonia. The objective of the workshop was to raise awareness on the importance of CT Prison Intelligence, to introduce participants to best practices in the field, as well as to enhance their knowledge on practical prison intelligence processes and the methodologies required for a more advanced and systematic prison intelligence system.
Expert speakers from the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States presented their best practices on Communications Intelligence, Human Intelligence, Operational Security, Dynamic Security and developing Interagency CT Prison Intelligence Requirements. These were followed by presentations from the participants on their current national efforts. As part of these efforts, a Good Practice document was drafted based on suggestions from participants, as well as a template for a Memorandum of Understanding between prison administrations, law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the participating countries.
