Yellow Medicine Co. Jail to Automate Inmate Tracking with RFID + Android

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire
—GUARDIAN RFID, the global leader in inmate management and tracking systems, today announce Yellow Medicine County Sheriff's Office in Granite Falls, Minnesota, has chosen GUARDIAN RFID for its jail.

Located outside two hours west of the Twin Cities metro area, Yellow Medicine Co. Jail holds up to 25 inmates. Corrections staff will use the GUARDIAN RFID Command and Control platform to maximize staff productivity, increase compliance efficiency with Minnesota Jail Standards, and eliminate its manual systems.

Android + RFID to Maximize Staff Performance

Yellow Medicine Co. Jail staff will be deploying 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.

Specifically, Yellow Medicine Co. Jail will be using customizable WordBlocks to automate point of responsibility logging that will assist in maximizing their defensibility and compliance, especially for at-risk offenders.

Improving Compliance with Jail Standards

Yellow Medicine Co. Jail is currently relying on manual systems with their jail management system from LETG (now Zuercher Technologies.) They had previously used Guard1 and the PIPE, a guard tour solution from TimeKeeping Systems to automate their security checks.

Yellow Medicine Co. Command Staff chose GUARDIAN RFID for its powerful configurability, ease of use, and its integration with LETG.

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