CLEVELAND, Ohio – May 14, 2012 – Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court has selected BI Incorporated for a range of location monitoring systems used to support supervision of more than 150 juveniles released to community supervision. The court finalized the one-year agreement, with possible extensions, with BI this month.

Formed in 1902, the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court is one of the oldest courts for youth nationwide. It serves the largest counties in Ohio, and oversees a detention center and many community-based services, including home detention. The court has focused heavily on alternatives to detention in recent years, and has reduced its detention center average daily population to levels not reached since the 1950s.

“Juvenile offenders are a challenging, less predictable population to manage in the community,” said Jock Waldo, Vice President of Marketing. “These location monitoring systems support home detention officers with important details on curfews, schedules and locations as they travel within the area.”

Under the agreement, BI will supply the following products and monitoring service:
  • BI ExacuTrack® AT monitors an offender’s location using a portable tracking unit that relies on available GPS data and other location positioning technologies. This FCC-certified device provides accurate data about an offender’s movement in near real-time.
  • HomeGuard® 200 and HomeGuard 206, systems that monitor schedules and curfews via radio frequency and cellular technologies, respectively.
  • BI TotalAccess® software for supervising officers to access and update offender data through a secure website.
  • BI Monitoring Center, BI’s 24/7 national monitoring center, which offers technical and customer support.

BI has worked with the juvenile court for years, beginning with a contract in 2006.
