Birmingham, AL – December 18, 2023 – Columbia County, NY, has awarded Black Creek Integrated Systems Corp. the project to implement Black Creek’s TSI PRISM Real-Time Location and Detainee Well-Being Monitoring System in the 139-bed Columbia County Jail located in Hudson, NY.

Designed with the goal of reducing in-custody deaths, the TSI PRISM System utilizes active RFID technology to automatically identify and continuously track a detainee’s location, heart rate and activity level, all in real time.

Detainees will be fitted with tamper-resistant wristbands mapped to unique tag I.D.s in the Black Creek application software. The software will annunciate alarms on monitoring workstations if a detainee’s heart rate or physical activity level rises above or falls below preset levels or if the wristband is removed. Alarm thresholds are configurable on an individual detainee basis. In addition, the Real-Time Location Tracking feature will pinpoint staff and inmate locations within the jail to ~1m accuracy.

The TSI PRISM System will seamlessly integrate with the Agency’s existing Black Creek’s Super Display® touchscreen-based physical security control system and Black Creek’s SallyPort©NY Jail Management System being upgraded.

Black Creek Integrated Systems is a turn-key source for modern, touchscreen-based, correctional facility security control systems and security management software solutions that reduce the cost of corrections and public safety.
