Corrections Facilities

Whether it’s a municipal, state, or federal correctional facility, providing a secure environment for inmates, staff, and the public is a top priority for correctional facility administrators. Establishing proven operational procedures, including prison or jail key control, is a critical step to help ensure physical security. For correctional facilities and detention centers, another way to enhance safety and security is through the use of automated guard tour systems.

Prison & Jail Key Storage Systems Heighten Accountability

Key management solutions offer access control and accountability by providing jail key storage and tracking. Guards and authorized users have access to specific jail key cabinets only as approved by the system administrator. For example, day shift personnel are not able to access cell keys outside of their regularly scheduled working hours, and they do not have access to keys to unauthorized pharmacy or medical areas. Keys must be returned to the KeyWatcher electronic key cabinet and can never be exchanged between personnel, as the system will notate that a key was not returned or returned by another user.

Correctional Facility Key Rings Offer Convenience

New technology has also allowed multiple prison keys to be stored on a single key ring. Tamper-proof locking mechanisms and unique identification systems offer the flexibility to add or remove prison keys without destroying the key ring. The tamper-proof key rings can also be conveniently stored in key control and management systems for access by authorized users with their assigned pass codes.

Custom Prison & Jail Key Cabinet Modules Secure Handheld Devices

Storage locker cabinets operate under the same premise as the key storage systems. Available in various sizes and configurations, they are becoming more common in correctional institutions as a method for securing, controlling, and tracking valuable items such as weapons, notebook-type computers, cell phones, and more.
