GUARDIAN RFID, together with Burleigh and Morton County Sheriff’s Departments, have partnered to deploy the GUARDIAN RFID platform to manage, monitor, and track inmates in-custody in its new 555-bed Burleigh-Morton Detention Center in East Bismarck. The deployment of GUARDIAN RFID is an upgrade to its previous inmate barcoding initiatives, leveraging GUARDIAN RFID solutions that include:

GUARDIAN RFID is deploying a two-way interface with Burleigh-Morton Detention Center’s jail management system, JailTracker. The integrated deployment will allow detention staff to automatically share inmate information from JailTracker with GUARDIAN RFID, including housing assignments, mugshots, and other security-critical information from the jail management system. Data collected by GUARDIAN RFID, such as security rounds, inmate movements, and inmate activity logging, will auto-synchronize to JailTracker.
