Become a prison guard | Kriminalforsorgen
Target Medium: Pico
Challenge: It can be problematic to convey exactly what it means to be a prison officer, and what situations they encounter in everyday life. For the same reason, training as a prison officer is not sought after, and in the past year alone, the number of newly trained prison officer has fallen by 100.
Task: A mobile Virtual Reality experience that contains a series of 360° videos which shows what it means to be a prison officer. The VR experience gives an insight into the world behind the walls of 2 of Denmark’s largest prisons; Vestre Fængsel and Storstrøm Fængsel, to hopefully motivate Danes, specifically young people, to take an education as a prison guard.
Solution: In collaboration with the agency Signifly, Khora helped with video production and VR-app programming of a series of 360° videos in Virtual Reality, which gives visitors the opportunity to experience some of Denmark’s largest prisons from the inside, and in VR to experience a day as a prison guard. The solution is mobile, and is designed to be used, among other things, in the Correctional Service’s event truck, which drives around the country and displays the 360° videos from 2 of Denmark’s largest prisons:
- Vestre Fængsel (Denmark’s largest prison, where inmates have not yet been sentenced)
- Storstrøm Fængsel (Closed prison with a secured ward)
