Clinton County Correctional Facility is a 300-bed detention center in McElhattan, Pennsylvania.

Central Pennsylvania jail unifies its inmate management objectives with RFID + Cloud + Mobile.

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., June 7, 2018 /PRNewswire—GUARDIAN RFID, the global leader in inmate management and tracking systems, today announced Clinton Co. Correctional Facility in McElhattan, Pennsylvania, has deployed GUARDIAN RFID for its detention facility.

Located 45 miles outside State College, Clinton Co. Correctional Facility has an average daily population of 258 inmates. Clinton Co. is using GUARDIAN RFID to maximize staff productivity, increase compliance efficiency with Pennsylvania Jail Standards, and eliminate its manual systems.

Clinton Co. Correctional Facility has deployed out SPARTAN, the ultra-rugged Android from GUARDIAN RFID running Mobile Command software, including hardened RFID tags strategically deployed throughout the facility to automate a wide range of data collection and reporting, including security checks and cell checks, headcounts, inmate programs attendance, and other inmate activity logging.

Prior to GUARDIAN RFID, Clinton Co. Corrections used a wide range of paper logging alongside Guard1, a guard tour solution from TimeKeeping Systems. Clinton Co. also uses XJail, a jail management system from Securus Technnologies.

Clinton Co. leadership chose GUARDIAN RFID for its powerful configurability, ease of use, and its integration with its enterprise software with XJail. GUARDIAN RFID also helps centralize its inmate management responsibilities, including security rounds and inmate-specific cell check tools, eliminating standalone tools, such as Guard1 and the PIPE, which lacked integration with their JMS.

The GUARDIAN RFID Cloud, OnDemand, will also help Clinton Co. gain real-time situational awareness, monitor security round performance, and access activity streams and reporting tools from anywhere, while working with their Jail Management System.

The Clinton Co. deployment of GUARDIAN RFID was funded by partnership between GUARDIAN RFID and the Pennsylvania Counties Risk Pool (PCoRP).
