You may call it whatever you like, but its essential function has stayed the same for decades. The main function of a jail or prison is to separate the evil from good. The concept is simple, but without a solid framework, the process and underlying operations may be a nightmare. Inmate identification and authentication must be precise as the number of prisoners increases yearly. Therefore, it is critical to include biometrics in a prison management system.
What is a Prison Management System?
Jail management software is intended to make data organization easier in big and small detention institutions. It seeks to decrease inaccuracies and irregularities in the overburdened penal system. It can help track inmate whereabouts across different facilities, retain individuals’ booking and release dates, centralize access to inmate medical records, organize cell distribution, track incidents, and provide up-to-date information on jail populations. Jail administration software is designed by jail management personnel such as sheriffs, wardens, and other administrators. Some prison administration software may be able to work with Automated Biometric Identification Software (ABIS) and paperless document management to make it easier to obtain information.
How do Traditional Prison Management Systems Work?
There are many software manufacturers known for jail management software. Most systems need a better way to deal with everything from releasing convicts to distributing meds, as most county prisons are overcrowded and understaffed. In addition, with a growing and diversified inmate population, it is clear that the inmate identification technique using photo ID badges needs to be upgraded. Cases of swapping IDs have resulted in bogus releases, inaccurate medicine dispensing, and incorrect identification of convicts upon intake and release.
To resolve this, fingerprint biometrics powered by the Automated Biometrics Identification System should be into the existing prison management system. The biometric solution developed by M2SYS can be integrated into any existing system. Benefits of implementing this solution include:
Manual identification records of inmates using photo IDs become obsolete. Instead, all the identification data is kept digitally and securely in the cloud.
The identification process of inmates using Sentinel is now easier than ever. Inmates can be identified or enrolled within minutes through any fingerprint scanner.
Keeping inmate information by pen and paper is time-consuming and leaves a long trail of paperwork. Thanks to biometrics, the information of each inmate is linked with their biometric data and can be accessed with one click.
A Complete Prison Management Solution
As of 2022, there are around 195 countries in the world, each with its own set of rules and regulations. The judicial system is no exception. That’s why having a static solution might not be ideal. Taking this into account, M2SYS has developed the eGov platform, a unique solution that fits any specific need. The Jail Management System by M2SYS is one of the easiest-to-use solutions with multimodal biometrics capabilities. Here are a few reasons why Jail Management System by M2SYS eGov is the solution you are looking for:
Security modules keep track of inmates by matching fingerprints, faces, irises, and more. This makes it impossible to release the wrong inmate.
This approach digitizes jail administration by removing paper forms and spreadsheets. It also automates procedures and uses AI to discover trends, trigger notifications, notify authorities, and various other tasks.
Fewer Resources Required
eGov doesn’t require any coding and can be used to make custom solutions that integrators can manage, change, integrate, and use with fewer resources.
The Prison Management System is an end-to-end solution that lets users interact easily with third-party systems like biometric capture tools and biometric matching services for convict identification.
The solution can be changed on the fly to meet the urgent needs of agencies. This saves hundreds of hours of development time, speeds up deployments, and prevents endless development cycles.
