JCN project presented at the 19th Conference of Directors of Prison and Probation Services (CDAP) in Helsinki.

The 19th Council of Europe’s Conference of Directors of Prison and Probation Services (CDAP) was held on the 17th and 18th June 2014 in Helsinki, Finland. Throughout both days of the conference the project on European treatment and transition management of high risk offenders was presented at the information stand.

The event was organized by Council of Europe.

The Conference was attended by more than 100 participants from about 30 countries. The information stand – as you can observe in the photos - had a roll-up poster in background and a promotion material containing information in relation to the Final Conference of JCN project. Over 20 participants visited our stand which was just opposite to the entrance to the conference room.

The information stand awoke interest of the different conference participants; the ones already following the work before as well as the other who had no opportunity to learn of it before. Hence, some new registrations are likely to be made by conference participants. In addition to afore mentioned, some of the keynote speakers of the Justice Cooperation Network (JCN) Final Conference visited the info stand and had discussion with the info presenters.

The Justice Coordination Network project was also presented in the keynote speech of Dr. Axel Boetticher from Germany. He presented the topic of “Reduction of sentences through increased probation professional release preparations and risk management”. Furthermore, in light of his presentation, Dr. Boetticher mentioned European treatment and transition management of high risk offenders (JCN-project) as an example of a good ongoing development project in the field of the enforcement of criminal sanctions.
