Simple to use badge swipe verifies identity of a person visiting a prison
A man who fled overseas days before his trial has now failed to return to jail after being granted a weekend pass. Martin Evans had been an inmate at the category C prison in the West Country near Devizes after being sentenced. He had been extradited from the US. Before that he went on the run to Spain and Holland where he masterminded a drugs and money laundering operation, shipping at least £3m of ecstasy and cocaine into Britain.
Tensor has adapted our tried and tested Visitor Pass system to provide a simple to use and tailor-made PC-based network for prisons. The Prison Pass is a low cost pass system for registering each visitor, both on and off site. At controlled monitor points, the visitor pass badge is simply swiped and a high quality digital image appears to the HM Prison Service Officers thus verifying that the correct person is passing through. Data can be stored for future reference or exported to other compatible databases.
