Visitor monitoring system is a must for future super-prison in Wrexham


Prison Pass Prison Visitor Management System

A visitor monitoring system capable of easily and rapidly keeping tabs on every person that enters a prison facility with a minimum level of user interaction should really be a must have for any modern “super-prison”, such as the one being built in Wrexham.

Work on the new facility has started in September and is due to be completed in 2017, bringing £23m a year to the local economy and 1,000 jobs. Estimated to provide enough space for up to 2,000 inmates, it will be the UK’s largest facility of its kind.

The Ministry of Justice and the Wales Office said a total of £30m will also be spent on local businesses as the new £250m prison is built. Commitments also include 100 new apprenticeships and 500 work placement days per year.

Tensor Visitor Monitoring system is a must for any new prison facility

Every new 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 visitor monitoring system.
