||<p>Privately-managed prisons have pioneered the use of modern technology to improve
the running of establishments and help promote rehabilitation. This includes the development
of in-cell telephony to help prisoners maintain ties with their families; interactive
story-time activities between prisoners and their children; and the introduction of
electronic kiosks, which allow prisoners to have greater control of managing their
day-to-day lives. The use of body-worn video cameras was introduced by private prisons.
Private prisons also have excellent facilities as standard, such as showers in cells,
which it is not possible to provide in our older prisons.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
