Prisons Dept takes measure to reduce overcrowding and recidivism

KUALA LUMPUR: The Prisons Department will utilise former National Service camps to house prisoners as part of their reformation strategy in a bid to reduce overcrowding and recidivism across all prisons.

The former National Service camps, according to the department, would be used as Resident Reintegration Centers and Satellite Prisons.

Additionally, the department will also study the use of Electronic Monitoring devices (EMDs) for low-risk prisoners on remand to avoid holding them in prison.

Other efforts to reduce overcrowding include installing bunk beds for the use of prisoners in prison cells and dormitories, and working with the court to speed up trials.
