MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Oct. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire — GUARDIAN RFID, the global leader in inmate management and tracking systems, today announce Beltrami Co. Sheriff’s Office has chosen the Command & Control platform from GUARDIAN RFID.

Beltrami Co. Sheriff’s Office, which operates its 140-bed jail, chose GUARDIAN RFID to digitally transform its operations to maximize staff productivity, increase compliance efficiency with Minnesota Jail Standards, Chapter 2911, and eliminate its manual systems.

One of the primary challenges Beltrami Co. Jail faces is the dependence on manual and paper-based systems. The use of multiple, separate systems have increased operational inefficiency and complicated efforts to manage inmate records. The result: preventable miscommunication, inability to measure results, time consuming report gathering, and incomplete or missing records.

With GUARDIAN RFID, Beltrami Co. Jail can electronically demonstrate their care and custody of offenders to ensure safety and security, while complying with jail standards, while interfacing with their jail management system from CentralSquare Technologies.

Operational Dominance with Ultra-Rugged Android


Beltrami Co. Jail is deploying SPARTAN, the ultra-rugged Android from GUARDIAN RFID, running Mobile Command software. Staff will now be capturing data at the point of responsibility. 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.


Beltrami Co. Jail inmates will also be outfitted with RFID Wristbands for inmate tracking, which includes programs attendance, court transports, and medical visits.

Command & Control

Jail Administrator Calandra Allen chose GUARDIAN RFID because of its superior reporting and data collection support, as well as its configurability.

Features such as Workflows, which supports the ability to create fully customizable modules, the ability to capture inmate activity logging in real-time, and the existing integration support with their jail management system were critical capabilities supported by GUARDIAN RFID.

Corrections professionals gain real-time operational awareness with secure access to the GUARDIAN RFID Cloud, supporting tools, dashboards, reports, and more from any Internet-accessible device, including tablets, smartphones, workstations, and laptops

The GUARDIAN RFID Cloud, OnDemand, will also help Beltrami Co. Jail 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 CentralSquare Technologies (previously LETG).
