New Education Tools Designed to Rehabilitate Prisoners

By GTL, Special for  USDR

GTL, an innovation leader in correctional technology, education solutions that assist in rehabilitating inmates, and payment services solutions for government, today announced it has released education solutions that benefit all stakeholders in the criminal justice  ecosystem.

“We have worked diligently to develop and deploy education and training services for all segments of a correctional ecosystem,” said Dr. Turner Nashe, GTL Senior Vice President of Education Services. “By addressing the market need for rehabilitative education for offenders and professional education for the workforce, I am confident we have addressed our goal of providing quality programming that saves time and money no matter which side of the wall we are  servicing.”

GTL’s Rehabilitative Education solutions help correctional facilities reduce recidivism and shrink the costs of incarceration by increasing the knowledge and skill sets that can assist inmates with securing employment upon their release. GTL provides a wide range of courseware  for:

  • Adult Offenders
  • Juvenile Offenders
  • Adult Probationers
  • Adult Parolees
  • Prison Industries

“As younger professionals become corrections officers, and as jails and prisons receive technology-savvy inmates, we needed to make sure that our systems support these ‘digital natives’ and deliver content securely through multiple form factors,” added Nashe. “We can even extend inmate education beyond the walls by ensuring that the programs an inmate starts while incarcerated extend through their time spent on probation and  parole.”

GTL’s Professional Education solutions can assist agencies in workforce management by increasing the amount and frequency of educational opportunities, digitizing an agency’s current course material, improving accuracy of employment records, monitoring and tracking progress, reducing staff turnover, decreasing manual processes, and reducing labor and printing costs. Professional Education is available  for:

  • Corrections Staff
  • Probation Staff
  • Parole Staff

“Our team of professional educators can now deliver education to all corrections stakeholders in the criminal justice community safely, efficiently, and more cost effectively,” concluded  Nashe.

GTL’s entire solution suite will be showcased from June 25-27 in booth 351 at the National Sheriffs’ Association’s Annual Conference and Exhibition in Reno, Nevada. GTL will also have its Technology in Motion tour vehicle on display inside the exposition hall at the NSA conference. The Technology in Motion vehicle includes the latest hardware, software, and connectivity to enable comprehensive hands-on demonstrations of the full range of offerings for the corrections, education, and government  sectors.
