Identifying Prisoners and Visitors using Localized AFIS

  1. 1. The Winter 2012 Biometrics SummitMiami, FL February 27 – March 1, 2012 Identifying Prisoners And Visitors Using Localized AFIS Mizan Rahman Jim Rokosky Founder & CEO Sr. VP, DSI Operations M2SYS Technology Global Tel*Link Corporation
  2. 2. Who are we?
  3. 3. M2SYS Overview• Biometric R&D company focus on technology innovation for rapid biometric adoption• Winner of 2007 Frost & Sullivan Biometrics Technology Innovation of the Year Award• Winner of 2011 Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award• Primary Markets Served: Public Safety – Law Enforcement, Electoral, Healthcare, Banking, Education, POS, Childcare, Transportation, Workforce Management, Membership Management, Application Security• Tens of Thousands of Customer Deployments in 100 Countries Worldwide
  4. 4. GTL Overview – Nationwide Presence Leading provider of telecom and technology products and services in the corrections industry Provides network based collect and prepaid call processing and digital recording infrastructure platforms in conjunction with monitored telecommunications systems Serves ~ 1,900 facilities and over 1.1 million inmates in 47 states and over 800 counties Holds the State Department of Corrections contract in 33 of 50 states including 14 of 20 largest GTL DOC Customer GTL with no DOC GTL Confidential and Proprietary 4
  5. 5. M2SYS & GTL - Synergy Visitor Management Biometrics Inmate Management• M2SYS focuses on biometrics and enabling software providers to rapidly integrate biometric functionalities• GTL focuses on providing end-to-end solutions for prisons
  6. 6. What brings us together ?
  7. 7. Statistics from DOJ• Of the 272,111 persons released from prisons in 15 States in 1994, an estimated 67.5% were rearrested for a felony or serious misdemeanor within 3 years, 46.9% were reconvicted, and 25.4% resentenced to prison for a new crime.• The 272,111 offenders discharged in 1994 accounted for nearly 4,877,000 arrest charges over their recorded careers.• Sex offenders were less likely than non-sex offenders to be rearrested for any offense –– 43% of sex offenders versus 68% of non-sex offenders.
  8. 8. The Magic Number ~ 40%Almost 40% of the prison population are repeat offenders. Some of ourclients came up with a perfect euphemism for these offenders – “Thefrequent flyers”• The same criminals are coming back to the jails over and over again• The same visitors are also coming back over and over again
  9. 9. Releasing the wrong inmate Releasing officer fails Swap badge with Pretend to be to prevent because someone else being someone else with of ethnic diversity or released false badge sophisticated execution
  10. 10. Need for localized AFIS 1 • Prompt identification of returning offenders 2 • Release the right inmate not his friend 3 • Ensure security & prompt visitor processing
  11. 11. What drives the successful implementation?• Fully integrated solutions• Merge both companies Integrated Usability expertise to understand end user culture and deliver exactly what is needed not Versatility Training what we want to sell
  12. 12. Challenges• Age of users • Intuitive design• Working class • User feedback • Footprint Demography Ergonomics Weather Cost• Cold • Biometric module• Dry can’t be more• Wet expensive then main JMS system
  13. 13. Who is using it?M2SYS & GTL together deployed our integrated solutions in over 100 jails, managing millions of biometric records. Country Project Prominent private correction 70 Jails, centrally connected facility Dekalb County, Atlanta, GA 3,500 beds – largest jail in the South
  14. 14. Future… Adoption Collaboration (cloud biometrics) Regional Data SharingMore integration(medicationdispensing, movement tracking)
  15. 15. M2SYS’s StrategyHybrid Biometric Platform™ (HBP) is an enterprise-ready biometric recognition system thatsupports fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein, and iris biometrics. HBP is “plug-and-play” withany of these biometric modalities, ensuring near 100% read rates for any biometrictechnology implementation. Features/Benefits: • One integration provides access to an enterprise-ready, Hybrid Biometrics™ system • Immediately utilize fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein, and iris recognition • Unlike four, separate low-level SDKs, Hybrid Biometric Platform™ is pre-built, scalable, easily integrated, and lowers total cost of ownership • Ensure 100% read rates, regardless of environmental, demographic, or other factors that negatively impact some forms of biometrics
  16. 16. GTL’s Strategy  Latest Correctional Applications and Consumer Payment Technology  Products/Services that Increase Call Volume and Improve Satisfaction  Tools that Increase Efficiency and Effectiveness of Investigations  Applications that Increase Efficiency and Effectiveness for the DOC and Friends and FamiliesGTL Confidential and Proprietary 20
