BI Incorporated Adds ‘Voice’ to GPS System Officers Can Place Voice Calls to Offenders With ExacuTrack AT

Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) December 20, 2007

BI Incorporated, the nation’s largest provider of offender monitoring technology and prisoner reentry solutions, announced today a major advancement in its Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking technology. Available immediately, BI ExacuTrack AT, an active tracking system for agencies monitoring community-based offenders, will have voice capabilities, meaning officers can call clients on the GPS tracking unit from anywhere at any time.

This product enhancement strengthens BI’s long-term commitment to meet the requirements of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, a law that included several provisions to protect communities from registered sex offenders. In particular, the Walsh law authorized up to $ 5 million annually in grants to state, local and tribal governments for GPS monitoring technology that included two- or three-way communication such as that being offered by ExacuTrack AT.

“GPS tracking is one of the highest forms of supervision outside of prison. As agencies move to next generation technology, such as ExacuTrack AT, they know they are using proven tools and support services to comply with these requirements,” said Bruce Thacher, BI President and CEO.

The new technology is protected by a portfolio of intellectual property including several patents recently acquired by BI. These patents clear the way for BI to provide a greatly enhanced feature set not currently available in the market. In total, BI now has more than 20 U.S. patents and 32 worldwide patents for electronic supervision technology, with the most recent acquisitions covering a variety of technologically significant GPS and voice transmission capabilities. Unlike other GPS vendors, BI has no pending patent litigation.

BI supports its community corrections agencies with a state-of-the-art national call center, staffed by highly trained specialists dedicated to the intensive supervision of individuals in the community. These trained specialists provide agencies with 24/7 support for a variety of technologies and systems, including the responsibility to forward violations and reports as needed. “We’re proud of the fact that our call center is 100% focused on the intensive supervision of individuals in the community, something most others in the industry cannot say,” Thacher added.
