This year, the EPTA Annual Conference will be organized on 20-22 September 2021 in Warsaw by the Polish Academy of Justice on the theme “Prison Service in Time of COVID”.
2020 has been marked by the outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic. We have all felt the changes in our everyday life that have been forced on us because we have limited the spread of the virus. The Prison Service, like other state services, was involved in protection and rescue activities. Officers often had to show flexibility and assume duties that went beyond the proper and assigned scope of activities.
Today, when a vaccine is available and new treatments are being developed, the time for summaries is slowly coming. The EPTA Annual Conference 2021 is an opportunity to present and summarize the participation of the Prison Service in the fight against COVID-19. During the annual meeting of the EPTA network, we will have the opportunity to exchange information and debate on the place of the Prison Service in the state security system in crisis situations.
We encourage all members of the EPTA network to share their own experiences in the fight against COVID-19.
More information about the conference will be provided here soon.
Hope to see you at EPTA Annual Conference 2021, Warsaw!
