Yesterday the transformative technology of the Talitrix- Inside the Walls Solution went live at Fulton County’s largest jail which occupies over 3,000 inmates.
Justin Hawkins, CEO of Talitrix states, “Talitrix is excited to announce that our solution is now live at the Fulton County Jail on Rice Street; one of the largest, most complex and challenging jail facilities. As we are all sadly aware this facility has seen more than its share of tragic inmate deaths. The systemic problems that plague the corrections space such as inmate deaths, contraband and severe staff shortages are well documented and are now at epidemic proportions across our nation. We would like to sincerely thank Sheriff Labat and his entire team for partnering with our organization to help bring forth this technological solution and help beat back these systemic challenges.”
Hawkins goes on to say, “We believe The Talitrix ITW Solution is state of the art technology that has the potential to completely disrupt the status quo, save lives and automate how all jails and prisons are managed going forward.”
WHAT IS THE INSIDE THE WALLS SOLUTION?
Talitrix Inside the Walls ‘ITW’ platform is revolutionizing the way jails and prisons are managed for the future. Today, staff shortages, and capital constraints are creating additional challenges when managing day-to-day activities inside facilities. As officer protection and inhumane treatment of inmates continue to plague departments, the risk of litigation increases daily. The Talitrix ITW solution suite solves suicide prevention, real-live time tracking and verification of in and out of cell time. This platform allows protection for the inmates and efficiency for the department.
The system is completely web based and can be accessed from anywhere. Basic features at this point include in and out of cell time, biometric check-ins, tracking functions like exclusion zones and keep separate rules. Upcoming features will include a count function to reduce the labor involved with the many unofficial counts conducted by facilities on a daily basis. 3D historical replays to show in full detail possible litigation events.
The system is unique in the industry in that it is the most aggressive location and biometric tracking technology on the market. The granular detail provided cannot currently be matched by any other competitors in the corrections industry. The current band has roughly 30 days of battery life. This battery life goes down with a higher ping rate of biometric monitoring.
TALITRIX WORKING WITH FULTON COUNTY
Talitrix contracted with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office in 2021 to beta test new technology wearables and a software web solution. Talitrix succeeded in getting this technology up and running at both of Fulton County’s South and North Annex facilities. Todd Jones, Chairman of Talitrix, says he ultimately believes this technology will help save lives and increase safety. Talitrix will soon be announcing many more counties across the state of Georgia and the country where the solution is being implemented.
