Syscon Presents Prison Gangs’ Management Solution To National Major Gangs Task Force
|By Syscon Justice Systems Ltd|
Vancouver, BC, 6th September, 2007: Syscon Justice Systems, the world’s leader in offender management systems, announced today that it will officially launch its new Security Threat Groups (TAG STG) application during a luncheon speech and presentation on Monday, September 10, at the National Major Gangs Task Force Conference in Reno, Nevada.
Developed in close cooperation with senior investigators from the Nevada Department of Corrections to meet the specific needs of correctional gangs’ management professionals, Syscon’s STG application module is designed to keep prison and jail management on top of the ever-changing threats posed by prison gangs and their associates. By providing the agency’s wardens, deputy wardens and investigating officers with the management and monitoring tools they need, fully integrated with data from many aspects of the underlying Offender Management System, the STG module directly allows prison and jail management teams to stay ahead of the dangerous threat curve posed by these groups.
“Syscon listened to what I had to say,” reports Supervisory Criminal Investigator Pamela del Porto of Nevada DOC, and the result is a Security Threat Groups module that our users have described as “an awesome management tool.”
The TAG STG module allows gangs to be defined at multiple levels, with connections to multiple sub-groups and street gangs. The module’s Location Membership Inquiry screen displays the full range of membership details in one place, including current housing location and incident histories. Yard investigators report that the ability to pull together such a wide range of data has significantly improved their management capacity.
The system also provides an impressive ability to search through all data for specifically targeted information. The Nevada DOC has already reported their success in assisting another state in solving a major crime through their ability to locate an offender based solely on his moniker and first name.
The presentation to the National Major Gangs Task Force will be given by John Campbell, former chief of the California DOC’s Emergency Operations Unit (and currently Director of Syscon’s Correctional Consulting Group); Brian Parry, a recognized gangs expert and instructor on gangs management to the FBI; and Nathan Hedges, senior business analyst for Syscon Justice Systems.
For 27 years, Syscon has been the world leader in innovative Offender and Case Management Software design and delivery. TAG offers management functionality from booking and legal documentation through trust accounting, commissary and case management to the management of parole and other forms of community supervision. TAG has been implemented in many States and large Counties across North America and in Australia.
In 2004, TAG was chosen to be the software platform for the entire prison and probation management system in England and Wales. Syscon was recently acquired by the nation’s leading correctional industry solutions provider, SECURUS Technologies of Dallas, Texas. The synergies generated by this acquisition, allows Syscon to expand it range of offerings to compliment multiple areas of the industry.
