The program consolidates all available information on each prisoner on one computer file, including visiting records, progress notes on behaviour, an inmate count and location, property sheets, signs of gang activity and prisoner grievance hearings.
Offender Management System (OMS)
OMS is a comprehensive inmate management system that enables instant data availability. The system architecture is on open technology that allows the integration with other systems to provide single point of entry, but still allows individual ownership of data.
From intake to release, information on all aspects of an inmate’s incarcerations are maintained – including initial intake, charges, sentencing, property, housing, medical, meal, planning, scheduling, and temporary release; to name a few. For heightened security, OMS utilises digital fingerprinting and iris recognition to positively identify inmates, increasing accuracy in inmate movement, housing, release etc. Additionally, built-in-reports that interface with Business objects Crystal Reports make accurate reporting easy.
The solution has been created with the direct input of corrections sector professionals. OMS users are invited to participate in our annual User Group Meeting enabling them to provide direct and valuable input into refining the application. Such input ensures that OMS is the most updated and user-driven offender management software available.
Benefits: Features and benefits of the computerized record consolidation includes:
- Prisoners Biography: Records and past history, Biometrics (Finger prints etc) of Prisoners and visiting relatives and lawyers etc.
- Visiting Records: Inmates are allowed three half-hour visits per week from a list of up to eight visitors. The program tracks the visitors listed on the visiting list and the number of visits per week. Also, the prison will be able to provide law-enforcement agencies with a list of an inmate’s visitors.
- Inmate count: The prison will be able to get an instant accounting of every housing location.
- Inmate disciplinary write-ups: Behaviour records will be complied with ease to determine earned time for early release.
- Property Sheets: A major source of litigation for prisons, alleged lost property has long been a source of frustration. The information will be stored on the computer, and a standard property sheet will be printed upon admission and release
- Gang activity: Information will be tracked on gang trends for clothing, drawings and tattoos and will be used to identify prisoners who might be affiliated with gangs. Digital photos of every inmate will be uploaded into the computer, so that gang members can be identified and kept apart
- Grievance proceedings:
Officials will be able to track and summarize all grievances filed by the prisoner
- Bed location: The program records all locations where a prisoner has been housed, including all cell mates. This allows the county to better track prisoners that should be kept apart and gives the district attorney’s office verification that inmates had contact, in the event a jail house confession is reported.
- Multi Facility/Multi Agency Integration.
Managing juvenile offenders requires an altogether different approach. While many adult offenders are herded through the criminal justice system, correction officers who work with juveniles no special care has often corrected a misguided youth. VirtuSync recognizes that these differences affect the way juvenile cases are managed. To address such unique needs, VirtuSync has developed Juvenile Detention Centre (JCD) for use in juvenile correctional facilities.
As accurate reporting is considered the cornerstone of the correctional system, VirtuSync includes the reports mostly seen in the JDC application. These in-built reports cover a wide range of topics, yet JDC easily interfaces with Crystal Reports for simple, custom report creation. Accommodating the essential needs is the top priority of VirtuSync.
Additionally, JD can be used with VirtuSync’s Digital Imaging System to attach juvenile photographs to case records, document dorm damage and create identification bracelets.
