Hardin County Jail in Eldora, Iowa has implemented Clincher RFID wristbands, non-transferable IDs that provide point-of-contact verification, to track and log interactions between guards and prisoners, according to RFID World Canada.
Mobile computers powered by Guardian Mobile software enable officers to scan a prisoner’s Clincher RFID Wristband and record the interactions to provide documentation for regulatory use. The system records the names of inmate and officer, location, date, and time.
The system is also used to track the giving and returning of potentially dangerous supplies such as razors. It is also used to track the transfer of jail inmates to and from the jail and courts, so that accountability is maintained.
