Chief Executive Carrie Lam, accompanied by Correctional Services Commissioner Woo Ying-ming, today officiated at the smart prison launching ceremony at Tai Tam Gap Correctional Institution.   It was a minimum security institution before renovation.

The conversion project at the institution has provided valuable experience and laid a good foundation for the long-term development of smart prison projects in future.   The department said it will continue to actively explore and develop different technology projects, continuously adding smart elements to modernise facilities and adopting humanised management.
