Washington Co. Correctional Facility is a pre-trial adult detention facility located 28 miles south Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Washington Co. holds up to 350 inmates and will be deploying the Command & Control platform from GUARDIAN RFID, integrating with its offender management system from GTL.

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Sept. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire — GUARDIAN RFID, the global leader in inmate management and tracking systems, today announce Washington Co. Correctional Facility has chosen GUARDIAN RFID for its 350-bed detention center.

Located 28 miles south of Pittsburgh, Washington Co. Correctional Facility 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.

Washington 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 offender management system from GTL.

Inmates will also 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

Washington 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.

Log face-to-face interactions with high-risk offenders with Mobile Command, the Android app that runs on SPARTAN, the ultra-rugged Android scanner from GUARDIAN RFID.

Command & Control

Deputy Warden Donald Waugh explained that his department's mission to become a completely digital facility is best supported by a partner like GUARDIAN RFID, whose platform, configurable tools, and deep correctional experience will result in a safer, more secure, and more aware facility faster and more affordably than anticipated.

Corrections professionals automate positive ID headcounts 80% faster and more accurately with Mobile Command by scanning or reading the inmates' RFID wristband throughout each shift.

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

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