MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire — GUARDIAN RFID, the global leader in inmate management and tracking systems, today announce Randolph County Sheriff’s Office has chosen GUARDIAN RFID for its 44-beds facility.

Located in Chester, Illinois, Randolph 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.

Randolph County 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 Lawman.

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.

Operational Dominance with Ultra-Rugged Android

Randolph 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.
