MAPLE GROVE, Minn., September 1, 2018 /PRNewswire — GUARDIAN RFID, the global leader in inmate management and tracking systems, today announce Union Co. Sheriff's Office Co. has chosen GUARDIAN RFID for its 37-bed detention center.
Located two hours south of Kennewick, Washington, Union Co. Correctional Facility will be digitally transforming its inmate management objectives with the Command & Control platform from GUARDIAN RFID, automating 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.
Union Co. Jail relies heavily on manual and paper-based systems. This includes everything from paper logging inmate movements and headcounts, to cell checks on high-risk offenders, which results in miscommunication and time-consuming report generation. Other inmate activity logging may be entered into their jail management system from eFORCE.
Inmates will be outfitted with RFID wristbands for electronic and visual identification, which will assist correctional officers and deputies streamline a wide range of interactions from court transports and pill calls to recreation time.
Deploying the Weapon of Mass Data Collection
Union Co. team members are deploying SPARTAN, the ultra-rugged Android from GUARDIAN RFID, running Mobile Command software. The jail is also deploying 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.
Command & Control
Cumbersome reporting and lack of insightful data are some of the key operational inefficiencies the sheriff's office is looking to turnaround, according to Sgt. Nick Huelter. With SPARTAN and its RFID data collection support, as well as imaging and voice to text, jail staff will gain the agility and responsiveness needed, especially when considering the high-rate of drug-dependent and mentally ill inmates in-custody at anytime.
The GUARDIAN RFID Cloud, OnDemand, will support Union Co. Correctional Facility's objective of gaining 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 eFORCE.
