The jail in Daviess County Kentucky has just gotten a lot safer. The jailer has approved a new system, Guard 1, to “help improve efficiency and safety” (1). Currently “inmate accountability involves knowing where inmates are supposed to be” (Seiter, pg. 292) by manually doing a head count. The new system will be totally digital and allow for real time tracking of inmates and safeguards for correctional officers.
The tracking of inmates electronically is extremely powerful. Guards will know where an inmate is at any given time and thus increases security. This reduces violence through “sound security hardware and reliable technology” (pg. 292).
Guard1 will also keep tabs on guards. The system is a safe-guard to ensure tasks are being completed. When they’re not, the system automatically notifies the supervisor. This ensures guards are completing the duties assigned to them and will make the facility safer. The IT Manager of Daviess County Detention center adds “the system will add layers of security and accountability for employees” (1).
A classification process and risk assessment are also used to protect correctional officers and inmates. Inmates are housed in areas of offenders with “similar traits or characteristics” (Sneiter, pg. 235) for their protection. Risk assessment is also used as an “attempt to predict an offender’s future behavior” (Sneiter, pg. 235), specifically future criminal acts. Utilizing acturial risk assessment has contributed to safer institutions and having the electronic data readily available will add another layer of protection for the Daviess County Detention Center correctional officers.
