Dallas-area jail to unify its inmate management objectives with RFID + Cloud + Mobile.

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Feb. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire—GUARDIAN RFID, the global leader in inmate management and tracking systems, today announced that Kaufman Co. Sheriff’s Office in Kaufman, Texas—has selected GUARDIAN RFID for its county jail to manage, monitor, and track its inmate population.

Kaufman Co. Jail has an average daily population of over 400 inmates. Prior to GUARDIAN RFID, Kaufman Co. used paper logs, Guard1 Plus, an iButton-based guard tour solution that included data collectors known as the PIPE, and its jail management system from Southern Software to manage security rounds, inmate movements, and daily activity logging. This manual, siloed approach to logging information lacked internal staff collaboration and operational awareness. Kaufman Co. realized the need for a platform that unifies the execution of their inmate management objectives, using RFID, the Cloud, and mobile to automate actionable, security-critical workflows.

Kaufman Co. Jail staff will deploy SPARTAN, an ultra-rugged Android device from GUARDIAN RFID, which runs Mobile Command software, along with RFID Wristbands and hardened RFID tags to capture a wide range of inmate activities, behavioral observations, inmate movements, programs attendance, and court transports. Mobile Command will also enable staff to capture image and video assets during cell checks uploaded to OnDemand, the GUARDIAN RFID Cloud. OnDemand will allow staff to gain real-time situational awareness, and monitor security round and positive ID headcount performance, while supporting a two-way interface with their jail management system from Southern Software.

Interfacing GUARDIAN RFID with its enterprise software

GUARDIAN RFID is deploying a two-way interface to the county’s jail management system from North Carolina-based Southern Software. The interface will enable detention staff to automatically share inmate information including housing assignments, mugshots, and other security-critical information, up-to-the-minute, while capturing inmate-specific events and activities in real-time. The interface will also enable data captured by GUARDIAN RFID to be automatically shared with Southern Software.
