St. Lawrence Co. Correctional Facility

Birmingham, AL – March 18, 2019 – St. Lawrence County, NY has awarded Black Creek a contract by the County Board of Legislators to replace the existing security control system at its 186-bed direct supervision St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility, located in Canton, NY, with a state-of-the-art Black Creek Super Display® Touchscreen electronic security system. St. Lawrence County has been a customer of Black Creek since 2013 when Black Creek’s SallyPort©NY Jail/Inmate Management System (JMS) was implemented at the jail.

The security control system upgrade will involve replacing the existing touchscreen control stations with a Super Display® touchscreen control system. Super Display® touchscreen control stations will be installed at seven control locations throughout the jail. As part of the implementation, new server and utility computers will be installed; existing cameras will be reused, but a new Genetec Digital Video Recording and Management System will be provided; and network infrastructure (programmable logic controllers, Gigabit Ethernet switches, etc.) will be updated as needed to support the new system. The existing intercom system will be replaced and integrated into the new Black Creek Super Display® control system; new intercom master stations will be supplied at each new touchscreen control station. Existing card readers, card access controllers, and watch tour card readers will be reused and integrated into the new control system. Black Creek’s Watch Tour® Manager software will be provided to manage, track, and monitor watch tour rounds. Existing utility control panels and relays will be integrated to allow control of inmate lights and television receptacles.

Each Super Display® Touchscreen station features up to three 32” LCD monitors that display all the facility’s security controls and CCTV camera call-up and video display. An officer can easily select different camera viewpoints, lock/unlock doors/gates, answer intercoms, control facility utilities, and more. The system provides agencies with a modern solution that incorporates all aspects of correctional facility physical security into a single, fully integrated package.

The upgraded security system will seamlessly integrate with Black Creek’s SallyPort©NY JMS. This full integration with inmate records allows officers to view inmate summary data, including known gang affiliations, disciplinary warnings, etc., on the Touchscreen control station thereby increasing both staff and inmate safety.
