G4S and Alanco alliance for prisoner tracking

Alanco : 06 April, 2009  (Company News)
Alanco to exploit new markets in RFID based detainee tracking systems in conjunction with G4S Justice Services
Alanco Technologies has announced that its Alanco/TSI PRISM (TSI) subsidiary has entered into international distribution, licensing and manufacturing agreements with G4S Justice Services (G4S). Under terms of the international distribution agreement, G4S has been granted exclusive distribution and licensing rights for the TSI system outside the continental US. Within the continental US, G4S will participate with TSI on certain major new market opportunities where the combined businesses can add value to the customer. G4S will also manufacture the RF transmitter bracelets worn by the offenders/detainees within prison and detention facilities utilizing TSI's RFID monitoring system. The agreements further provide for initial licensing fees and payments to TSI during the Company's current fiscal fourth quarter period beginning April 1, 2009.

G4S Justice Services CEO Blake Beach commented, "We are very excited about our new business relationship with Alanco/TSI PRISM and the benefits that each company can derive from it. Systems that monitor movement within correctional facilities promote transparency and accountability, which is critical in this era of increased focus on improving performance and reducing litigation. TSI's RFID monitoring solution solves many problems for corrections administrators, ranging from basic activities such as accurate prison counts to more complex requirements such as identifying gang and radicalization activity."

Alanco Chairman and CEO Bob Kauffman added, "This G4S alliance adds a significant new dimension to both our international and domestic business. G4S' extensive global footprint, with operations in 110 countries, will enhance TSI PRISM international market opportunities to an extent only possible through the marketing capabilities of a dominant worldwide security industry leader. Domestically, G4S' extensive relationships and strong reputation in the US criminal justice market will help accelerate the adoption of TSI PRISM RFID tracking in certain US market opportunities which have been historically difficult to penetrate. Also, our new manufacturing cooperation with G4S should result in significant transmitter cost reductions, technology enhancements, and improved quality through G4S' ISO 9001:2008 accredited manufacturing facilities."

TSI PRISM RFID inmate tracking systems are currently installed in 10 US prisons and jails with an additional facility in Canberra, Australia under construction. In addition, TSI was selected as subcontractor to leading systems integrator, Northrop Grumman, to provide RFID monitoring systems to the Department of Homeland Security for up to 19 immigration detention sites across the nation.

G4S is the world's leading international security solutions group, which specializes in outsourced business processes in sectors where security and safety risks are considered a strategic threat. Listed on the London Stock Exchange, G4S 2008 consolidated revenues were approximately $8 billion USD. The Company has in excess of 585,000 employees with operations in over 110 countries.
