Birmingham, AL – April 1, 2022 – Ulster County, NY, has awarded Black Creek the project to upgrade the existing Security Control System at the Ulster County Jail, located in the Ulster Co. Law Enforcement Center in Kingston, NY. Black Creek has been working with the 426-bed facility since 2002, when the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office initially implemented Black Creek’s physical security control system at the jail.

The scope of the work will involve migrating the Programmable Logic Controllers to a new platform, upgrading all the touchscreen workstations to a supported format, replacing the existing Video Recording and Management software with a Bosch system, replacing the existing access control system with a new Maxxess control system, and replacing the intercom master stations with new masters. Existing field devices will be reused, with the exception of existing analog cameras that will be replaced with IP cameras. The touchscreen control system provides control and monitoring of doors, intercoms, cameras, and other systems within the facility.

The upgraded Black Creek system will improve the safety of staff and visitors with its enhanced functionality that the current control system does not provide. Each Super Display® Touchscreen station features LCD monitors that display all the facility’s security controls and a CCTV camera call-up and video display. An officer can easily select different camera viewpoints, control facility utilities, and more. The system upgrade will make security control easier and save the facility money by decreasing maintenance costs and increasing staff efficiency.
