Tensor Prison Pass is an extremely useful tool for inmate visitor monitoring


Thorough monitoring of an inmate’s visitors and contacts is an extremely important issue, especially when the respective prisoners violate the terms of their short-term releases, as was the case with a 22-year old Scottish man.

According to a news report, the inmate, Michael Murray failed to return to Castle Huntly open prison near Dundee on Saturday. Mr. Murray, from the Maryhill area of Glasgow, was convicted of robbery in November 2011, and was on temporary home release to Glasgow from Wednesday, May 29.

Police are now looking for him, and have already started questioning the immediate family and known associates in the area.

Unfortunately, this type of situation can occur at any time, and this is exactly the reason why any prison should implement a very solid, reliable and secure Prison Visitor Monitoring system, that will enable officers to always have an updated list of the inmate’s recent visitors available – and that’s exactly what Tensor Prison Pass is all about.

Tensor Prison Pass is a low cost, easy to install, computer based pass system for registering each visitor, both on and off site, that will enable HM Prison Service Officers to quickly check the identity and monitor the movements of visitors.

A digital or eyeball camera takes a photo of the visitor, which is later on printed on a bar-coded pass using a high speed printer so each visitor is easily identified. Then, at specific 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.

Furthermore, biometrics can be combined with the visitor badges to operate the system, since Tensor’s range of dermal fingerprint reading technology gives increased accuracy and reliability, and is perfect for when irrefutable proof of identity is required.

Tensor can offer various financing and rental packages to both private and public sector organisations who wish to install our products. If you’d like to find out more about it, just Contact Us or Book a Demo, our representatives will be more than happy to answer all of your questions and queries.
