Implementing a biometric inmate identification solution using the M2SYS Bio-Plugin™ software has helped jails and correctional facilities across the country:
- Avoid duplicate booking entries
- Eliminate inmate identity fraud
- Track inmate movements
- Ensure accurate medication distribution
- Verify the release of the right person
By enrolling all incoming prisoners and checking their biometric identities again at the time of release, jails and correction facilities can ensure that the same person coming in under that name was the same person going out.
At the same time, it has prevented some prisoners from successfully being booked using the identity of another, usually a close relative, because the prints simply don’t match what is already in the system.
M2SYS biometric inmate identification solutions also helps to reduce the time involved in making a positive identification. They have saved a considerable amount of time that was previously spent attempting to identify incoming prisoners who would deliberately conceal their true identity to try and avoid being charged with additional offenses or have existing warrants served upon them.
By double-checking identity at the time of release, jails and correctional facilities no longer need to expend resources trying to locate someone erroneously released due to a failure to make a positive ID before release. The small amount of time spent enrolling and checking pales in comparison to the amount of time spent correcting identification or releasing errors.
