DOCR Technology Projects

  • Inmate Kiosk - Fifteen Self-Service Kiosks were installed in the housing Pods at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF) in Boyds, Maryland. The Kiosks are connected to the facilities' Keefe commissary system and allow inmates to order from commissary and check their account information real-time. This system has reduced the use of paper for commissary ordering, improved order accuracy and reduce inmate request for account information.
     
  • Inmate Phone System - In August 2008, a new inmate phone system was implemented at Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF) and Montgomery County Detention Center (MCDC) by GTL. This new system provides the inmates with a flat rate for all domestic calls and provides the two facilities with a single web-based system for administration and reporting.
     
  • Jail-Based One-Stop Career Center - A computer lab consisting of eight PCs was set up at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF) to provide the inmates with the following services:
    Labor Market Research, Self-Assessment, Work on resumes, cover letters, and job applications, Job Search, and Travel information for job locations. The computers in the lab are running on an isolated network using static IP addresses to ensure inmate access is limited to specific job training sites and is monitored by MCCF staff at all times.
     
  • Pre-Release and Reentry Services Division (PRRS) Career Center - A computer lab consisting of ten PCs was set up at the Pre-Release and Reentry Services Division (PRRS) to provide the residents with the following services: Labor Market Research, Self-Assessment, Work on resumes, cover letters, and job applications, Job Search, and Travel information for job locations. The computers in the lab are running on an isolated network and internet access is controlled by a software filtering system. Daily access reports by PC, Time, and User ID are produced and reviewed by the PRRS Work Release Coordinators.
