IPRT launched the third in our series of annual reports on Progress in the Penal System ('PIPS') on Friday 25th of October 2019.
Director General of the Irish Prison Service Ms Caron McCaffrey was keynote speaker. Dr Gurchand Singh, Chief Information Officer of the Department of Justice & Equality and Kate Mitchell, Deputy Director of Mental Health Reform also responded to the report.
