Wireless Inmate Tracking Added To Los Angeles Jail
In an effort to monitor large groups and/or individuals in correctional facIlties, their surroundings, or in set open environments, a Los Angeles jail will use the AMS-2000i wireless inmate tracking system from Elmo-Tech Ltd.
The system enables real-time restricted zones administration and supports correctional facilities’ operations by tightening supervision of inmates and enhancing the security of staff members.
The system allows for the flexible implementation of various types of in-house and off premises work or rehabilitation programs and can interface with other facility security and communication systems, including alarms, CCTV cameras, door-locks and more, as needed.
Included in the arrangement are tamper-proof, ankle or wrist worn RF (radio frequency) transmitters for inmates, officers and staff, officer and staff pagers, a network of wireless monitoring units, and a user software interface.
The information derived from the network of monitoring units allows facility management to receive imperative location information on inmates and staff, providing it with enhanced control over facility operations.
The system enables the user to configure the facility inner and outer grounds to include restricted areas and monitor them according to inmate’s schedules.
The new system will be configured to monitor a few hundred inmates, who will wear Elmo-Tech’s transmitters, monitored by a wireless network of smart control units distributed throughout the facility.
