April 4, 2023 – Black Creek Integrated Systems Corp. has been awarded a contract by the County of Saratoga, NY, to upgrade the existing physical security control system and CCTV system at the Saratoga Co. Correctional Facility. Black Creek previously installed the existing control system at the 243-bed facility in 2016 utilizing then-current technology.

Black Creek will replace all existing touchscreen control stations with new workstations utilizing the latest supported Windows® OS and the latest Black Creek Super Display® touchscreen control software. The project includes furnishing and installing security server computers, new network switches, and a new secure, high-speed VPN appliance for remote diagnostics and support via the Internet. Black Creek will also provide the County with updated capability to perform security control functions via portable tablet devices, which will allow officers to be more mobile during direct supervision of the inmates.

Black Creek will also replace the existing CCTV video management system with a new state-of-the-art Bosch Video Recording and Management System. As part of the CCTV upgrade, Black Creek will also furnish and install new high-definition IP cameras and network components to assure visibility into the facility for security and control.

The new 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 one or two 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.
