About this event

Electronic monitoring of offenders has been used in Britain for over 20 years and while hardware has improved, the system has changed very little. The talk investigates the system, its functions, what developments have been made, and also how the curfew monitoring system has been used to convert chaotic lifestyles into sensible patterns that encourage employment, permanent residence, and family values. We explore specialist uses such as TPIMS and system integration with police and social services, and start to consider how the technology will be used for the likely explosion into personal monitoring of illness that has only just begun. 

About the speaker

J G CAMPBELL BSc CEng MIMMM, the speaker, is a former Home Office Forensic Scientist, and was trained as an analytical chemist and toxicologist in criminalistics and drug abuse.  As a result of a greater requirement at the time for criminalistics, he transferred to physical evidence cases such as investigations involving materials, tool marks, paint, glass and fibres including accident reconstruction. 

Later, he ran a large laboratory for Northern Engineering Industries, then set up an independent forensic science laboratory. He was asked by the Home Office to develop the specification for home curfew monitoring equipment, or ‘tagging’ and test available hardware for compliance in the field. He has also carried out extensive trials on the system and has helped manufacturers develop their products. Subsequently he has assisted the courts in determining the case of equipment failure or damage on many occasions for defence, prosecution, the Department of Justice and TPIMS.

Jim Campbell heads the SureScreen Scientifics laboratory which is part of a group of companies that include SureScreen Diagnostics which manufactures a range of medical diagnostic products, and SureScreen Life Sciences which carries out DNA analyses and advanced medical screening that includes neurochemistry, cancer and infectious diseases.  Mr Campbell has personally trained many prisons, many large organisations and several foreign police forces, customs and anti-trafficking groups abroad.
