Jacquetta Szathmari, member of the Programming Committee, will moderate a fascinating discussion about the world of crime behind bars. This panel will include two formerly incarcerated gentlemen who were party to and can speak about contraband in jails: How it gets in, how it is used and the economy around it. This panel will also feature a newly-retired Internal Affairs Bureau investigator for the Department of Corrections who performed undercover investigations with a focus on corruption, specifically on officers committing fraud (often with contraband and through gambling rings).
