Visitor monitoring system can help improve the prison visitor experience

Prison Pass software helps streamline access

A visitor monitoring system can help officers improve the overall visitor experience for family members. This is also the aim of the Invisible Wall scheme, which is aimed at trying to maintain links between inmates at Winchester prison and their families.

Along with courses to improve parenting skills, the service also runs days where families can be together in an informal environment and inmates can play with their children.

Invisible Wall has now been given a boost with the donation of £9,000 from the Rotary Club of Southampton and Rotary District 1110, a news report was able to reveal.

The money will go towards ensuring the service can continue to provide support to families both inside and outside the prison and pay for information leaflets at the visitor centre.

Every prison that aims to improve visitor experience 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 streamline the prison access process.

Tensor Prison Pass visitor monitoring system enables fast, easy and reliable visitor identification

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.
