Corrections and Monitoring

Biometric Identity Solution

Rapid and accurate identification of prisoners, detainees and monitoring program enrollees for increased efficiency

The Challenge

Correctional officers face fundamentally inefficient processes due to inadequate identification capabilities. Functions such as intake, pre-release and ins/outs take longer than they should. When officers administer medication, provide inmates access to law and educational resources, or facilitate visitation, an assured inmate identity is mandatory. This process can take many forms, but most are inefficient and time-consuming. Many lead to queueing, which is inherently unsafe in a corrections environment. Community corrections monitoring functions also require positive identification. Ensuring compliance with the conditions of release can stretch limited agency resources to the breaking point – jeopardizing the ability of a facility to meet requirements.

The Solution

Enter biometrics. It isn’t easy for inmates or monitoring enrollees to replicate, share, or lose biometric identifiers (fingerprints), and biometric solutions are typically easy to deploy. Our Corrections and Monitoring solution facilitates the rapid and accurate identification of prisoners, detainees, and monitoring program enrollees. This contributes to more efficient processes by providing a quick and easy way to establish positive identity during critical operations—streamlining procedure and keeping officers and agents safer. Additionally, we can provide a range of optional features to further enhance efficiencies, such as jail management and correction management system integration, administration tools for auditing and strong, composite authentication for network and digital data security.
