Tracking Millions of Inmates and Visitors at U.S. Jails and Correctional Facilities
Summary: Millions of Inmate Biometric Fingerprints Registered and Identified to Increase Public Safety
M2SYS works closely with its clients, enabling them to capitalize on the benefits of using biometrics for security and accelerating their return on investment (ROI). These case studies of multi-modal biometrics security deployments for various verticals show how biometric security software solutions can protect the welfare of citizens, stop corruption and fraud, and create efficiency.
Working with jail management software systems at correctional facilities throughout the U.S., M2SYS Technology registers and identifies millions of inmates and facility visitors each year with biometric fingerprint identification technology. Thousands of M2SYS biometric hardware devices capture millions of inmate identities each day during booking, medication distribution, location tracking, and again prior to release. Critical to ensuring public safety, M2SYS’ biometric inmate identification solutions often times will prevent over-populated and under-staffed jails from releasing unauthorized inmates due to human error or to inmates swapping ID bracelets with other inmates. Biometric identification solutions from M2SYS provide a fail-safe way to properly manage correctional facilities. Inmate whereabouts can be determined at any time, which increases inmate accountability and in turn, increases overall jail and public security and safety.
Unable to adhere with dynamic and complex industry security regulations, traditional inmate identification technologies were not keeping pace to securely manage the rapidly growing number of prisoners and their records. Jails and correctional facilities all over the country sought to adopt a more accurate, flexible, and customizable inmate identification solution not easily fooled or spoofed by inmates seeking to swap identities. Jail management software providers needed an inmate identification solution that could be seamlessly integrated into their own application without the need for extensive development or an understanding of a complicated biometric SDK.
Inmate biometric identification solutions from M2SYS provide a fail-safe way to properly manage correctional facilities. Inmate whereabouts can be determined at any time, which increases inmate accountability and in turn, increases overall jail security and safety. M2SYS’ Bio-Plugin™ identification software has helped modernize hundreds of jails across the country by offering a fast, accurate, and secure means of inmate identification to provide a fail-safe way to properly manage correctional facilities. Hundreds of jails across the U.S. are using thousands of M2SYS biometric hardware devices to register and identify millions of inmates each year.
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.
