Washington Department of Correction gains prisoner tracking technology

Alanco : 11 June, 2008  (Application Story)
RFID based inmate tracking system to be installed in prisons in the Washington DC area for improved prisoner security and safety
Alanco Technologies has announced that its Alanco/TSI PRISM subsidiary has been awarded a $3.3 million contract by the Washington DC Department of Corrections (DOC), previously identified as a 'large metropolitan jail,' for installation of a TSI PRISM RFID inmate tracking system. The TSI PRISM system will be utilised to track and monitor over 2,000 inmates at the Washington, DC jail complex and to provide a state-of-the-art investigative tool and safety system for the DOC staff numbering in excess of 450 persons. The project is expected to be completed in the current year and will represent the largest installation of active RFID technology to track and monitor people anywhere in the world. The new tracking system combines Alanco's TSI PRISM RFID system with Wi-Fi compatible RTLS technology from AeroScout.

Greg Oester, Alanco/TSI PRISM President, commented, "We look forward to working with the Washington DC DOC in their efforts to improve jail safety and inmate accountability. The adoption of our RFID inmate tracking technology is accelerating in the corrections market, and particularly, in the metropolitan jail segment where we are actively pursuing major projects involving additional coverage in total of over 25,000 inmates. This new award also marks our attainment of a new record high project backlog in excess of $5.4 million."
