Computers in cells provide prisoners with access to education, counselling, and legal services. Access to education is a basic human right that is increasingly becoming compromised in prisons. It has been recognised that education in prisons boosts motivation and rehabilitation of prisoners and is vital in reducing recidivism rates. Access to computers in cells additionally provides prisoners with counselors through external providers which is necessary for the rehabilitation of detainees. Access to legal information and services can also be provided through computers in cells, allowing prisoners to access a fair trial.
