M2SYS delivers integrated biometric technology to largest detention center in southeast for process improvements and tightened security
Patent-pending biometric fingerprint system to process over 80,000 inmates annually at Dekalb county jail in Atlanta, GA
Atlanta, June 22, 2005 – M2SYS Technology, a global leader in biometric technology research and development, announced today that the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office in Atlanta, GA has selected the M2SYS fingerprint recognition solution for use within its 3,636-bed detention center. The biometric system is integrated into Dekalb’s correctional facility management software provided by Digital Solutions Inc. (DSI), an M2SYS strategic partner.
M2SYS’ patent-pending fingerprint recognition solution called Bio-Plugin™ enables software companies like DSI to immediately implement a complete, seamless fingerprint recognition system, including a high-performance 1:N identification engine. Bio-Plugin™ eliminates the system dependencies, extensive development, and specialized knowledge of biometric complexities inherent to fingerprint technology SDKs. This enables software companies to remain focused on their core product, while establishing a new revenue channel with the biometric component integrated into their systems.
The Bio-Plugin™ solution was recently added to DSI’s Offender Management System (OMS), made available to its growing customer base of detention centers throughout the U.S., and was quickly recognized as best-of-breed choice and adopted by the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office detention center; the largest in the southeast, processing 80,000 to 100,000 inmates annually.
The fingerprint module allows jail officers to identify new inmates, authenticate visitors, track inmate movement throughout the facility, and verify identity prior to release. The DeKalb facility is utilizing six M2SYS fingerprint readers – one at both the male and female intake areas and four at release. Inmates simply place one finger from each hand on the reader, and their record is automatically displayed within the DSI application.
“The Bio-Plugin™ fingerprint recognition system is a welcome addition to the DSI Offender Management System,” mentioned Sheriff Thomas Brown. “As a seamless software component, it was simple for our detention officers to learn and operate. And, without costly hardware requirements, we can easily and affordably expand its reach anywhere throughout our facility. We now have a dependable means of identifying inmates and visitors, which improves officer productivity, reduces liability, and bolsters the security of our facility.”
“With the addition of M2SYS’ Bio-Plugin™ solution, the DeKalb County Detention Center has instantly leveraged a critical technology component to sharpen its identification techniques,” noted Michael Trader, President of M2SYS. “With this valuable investment, not only is the jail more secure, operations are more efficient, and the interests of all communities in the greater metro Atlanta area are more thoroughly safeguarded.”
