BS/2 Continues Cooperation with the Prison Department

Published: 3 December 2015 y., Thursday

Since July 1, 2012, the acting Lithuanian Probation Act envisages intensive control of released convicts using electronic tracking devices. For over three years such devices have been provided for the Prison Department under the Lithuanian Ministry of Justice by „Penkių kontinentų bankinės technologijos“ (or BS/2) company.

This autumn marked a new contract on the electronic tracking devices lease, under which BS/2 provides the Prison Department with the ultimate PureMonitor house arrest monitoring system produced by SuperCom. BS/2 also provides its support and maintenance, as well as consulting and training services for officers dealing with those devices.

According to BS/2 Deputy Manager Tomas Augucevicius, the new system provides an even smoother implementation of the Probation Act requirements. "We‘ve offered the Prison Department the system from SuperCom which is the world's IT leader. Government institutions and businesses from all over the world alike choose the SuperCom security solutions. BS/2 are also not freshmen in security solutions. We have many years of experience, so we can offer high quality services thus contributing to effective convicts‘ control and tracking under the Probation Act", Mr Augucevicius says.

The BS/2 -supplied monitoring system consists of a bracelet for electronic surveillance put onto the leg of a convict who released from confinement but is still under supervision. Its disposable and adjustable strap allows freedom of movements. The system also consists of a base station with special SuperCom cloud-based software.  The base station installed in the convict’s house and connected with the bracelet tracks his or her present location. The base station also has a smart LCD touchscreen used for officials’ messages to the released convict. The station also allows identifying a person by fingerprint if necessary. PureMonitor software gives probation officers the opportunity to set schedules, generate reports, and review tracking information, and so on.

During the first three years since the Probation Act entered into force in 2012, more than 400 people have been subject to electronic tracking.
