This Policy Framework explains the process for prison staff around the provision of Access to Digital Evidence Equipment (A2DE).



This Policy Framework sets out the procedures and guidance for staff in all prisons and young offenders institutions to help them comply with the legal requirements in terms of providing prisoners with access to digital equipment, where that equipment is required for prisoners to view electronic disclosure by the Crown as evidence for the prosecution in any legal case. Equipment provided for these purposes is termed Access to Digital Evidence Equipment (A2DE).
