Warren Co. Jail is a pre-trial detention facility in northeastern Pennsylvania with an average daily population of 110 inmates. Warren Co. has gone-live with GUARDIAN RFID, integrating with its offender management system from GTL.

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire — GUARDIAN RFID, the global leader in inmate management and tracking systems, today announce Warren Co. Jail has deployed GUARDIAN RFID for its 110-bed detention center.

Located in northeast Pennsylvania, Warren Co. Jail is digitally transforming its inmate management objectives with the Command & Control platform from GUARDIAN RFID to automate its inmate tracking, security rounds, including face-to-face cell checks on high-risk and administrative segregation offenders, and other activity logging in real-time.

Previously, Warren Co. Jail used Guard1 from TimeKeeping Systems, extensive paper logging to log cell checks on high-risk offenders, and its Offender Management System from Global Tel-Link (GTL). Using a combination of disparate tools resulted in security data and inmate management data existing in multiple, standalone systems. This created communication and administrative challenges. By eliminating their standalone guard tour system and paper processes, Warren Co. Jail now centralizes all of their inmate management objectives while integrating with their enterprise software from GTL.

Deploying the Weapon of Mass Data Collection

Staff at the Warren Co. Jail are using SPARTAN, the ultra-rugged Android from GUARDIAN RFID, running Mobile Command software. The jail has mounted hardened RFID tags strategically located throughout their facility to automate a wide range of data collection and reporting, including security checks and cell checks, headcounts, meal and recreation offerings, and a wide-range of other inmate activity logging at the point of responsibility.

Warren Co. Jail is also tagging inmates with RFID wristbands for inmate tracking and activity logging.

Mobile Command is a powerful, Android app that runs on SPARTAN, the ultra-rugged scanner from GUARDIAN RFID. Corrections professionals can use versatile evidence-gathering tools with SPARTAN, including imaging, which synchronizes to the GUARDIAN RFID Cloud for secure reporting.

Command & Control

Warden Jon Collins chose GUARDIAN RFID to unify its inmate management objectives, while supporting interoperability with the facility's existing enterprise software, Offender Management System, from GTL. GUARDIAN RFID is helping jail staff to electronically identify keep separates, alert staff to all inmate restrictions, view mugshots, and more.

The GUARDIAN RFID Cloud, OnDemand, will also help Warren Co. gain real-time situational awareness, monitor security round performance, and access activity streams and reporting tools from anywhere, while working with its jail management system from GTL.

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