Correctional facilities must comply with government regulations requiring personal observations of inmates. The legal and financial consequences are serious if jails can’t reliably demonstrate compliance during inspections following a critical incident.
Life Check Systems is like putting a supervisor in your new officers’ pockets 24/7. It’s a simple, affordable technology solution for jails that increases accountability and reduces liability.
If a critical event happens at your correctional facility, noncompliance with safety regulations increases your financial and legal liability.
One of the first things state inspectors often ask to see is documentation of required inmate safety checks. If checks have been missed or reports appear to be falsified, jails can lose their certification. It also likely means jails cannot house federal or state inmates, a source of revenue for many counties.
Many correctional facilities attempt to meet regulations with paper forms, but provide no mechanism to prompt officers to perform checks. Security camera footage can reveal checks were not performed or reports have been falsified.
Jails across the country will face lawsuits alleging they negligently exposed inmates to Covid-19. Consequently, being able to accurately document compliance with regulations requiring direct inmate observations has never been more important for jails. With Life Check Systems, you can rest easier knowing that all rounds and watches are being completed on time and properly documented.
Push notifications and alarms that steadily increase in volume and repeatedly alert officers and supervisors if a compliance failure approaches.
Officers must sign in and physically scan a barcode with every observation, verifying that they are physically present to observe inmates and preventing falsified reporting.
Inspection logs are automatically generated and stored on the cloud. Export reports with all observation data, including photos, videos, exact timestamps and officer information.
All Life Check System devices operate as an on-demand body camera.
