Illinois prisons to receive inmate tracking

Alanco : 20 June, 2008  (Application Story)
TSI Prism tracking system based on RFID technology to be used for prisoner control in Illinois jails
Alanco Technologies has announced that its Alanco/TSI PRISM subsidiary has been awarded a contract valued at $850,000 by the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) to provide a major system upgrade and three years of extended maintenance on a TSI PRISM RFID inmate tracking system in operation since 2003 at the Logan Correctional facility located in Lincoln, Illinois. The new contract commences July 1, 2008, with an initial payment of approximately $300,000. Alanco/TSI PRISM will provide 2,000 new generation inmate wrist transmitters and 300 new staff belt-mounted transmitters employing advanced technology, requiring less maintenance, and providing greater transmission range. The new transmitters also feature an extended battery life approaching twenty-four months, and incorporate a new patented single strap closure mechanism, which reduces the enrollment/de-enrollment time per inmate by over 70%.

Greg Oester, Alanco/TSI PRISM President, stated, "The IDOC's decision to upgrade the Logan system is a strong endorsement of the value proposition provided by the TSI PRISM inmate tracking system over the past five years. We are excited by the opportunity to further enhance the operational benefits of our RFID inmate management system at Logan through this major new system upgrade. This new Illinois project also increases our current contract backlog to approximately $6.0 million."
