PDC and GUARDIAN RFID(R) to Exhibit New Clincher(R) Extra Wide Inmate ID Wristbands at the 2014 American Jail Association Conference and Expo

Detainee RFID Wristbands Help Jails Save Money, Time, and Resources by Working Faster and Increasing Productivity

VALENCIA, CA--(Marketwired - April 16, 2014) - PDC, the global leader of innovative identification solutions, in partnership with GUARDIAN RFID®, the global leader in inmate management systems and solutions, announced today it will exhibit its Clincher® RFID wristband solutions for jail detainee identification and management at the 2014 American Jail Association (AJA) Conference and Exposition, from April 27 to 30, in Dallas, TX.

Upon registration, show attendees will be given a Clincher Extra Wide RFID wristband. Attendees can then visit PDC in booth #307 or GUARDIAN RFID in booth #207/306 to have their Clincher wristband scanned by an RFID reader to instantly win prizes ranging from gift cards to tablets.

PDC's new line of Clincher Extra Wide inmate ID wristbands are ¼" wider than the original Clincher to provide a more durable seal and to better accommodate facilities that use larger inmate ID insert cards. For jails aiming to work faster while maximizing their compliance with jail standards, the RFID version of Clincher Extra Wide can be used with GUARDIAN RFID's software to help streamline operations and better manage, monitor, and track inmates.

"With GUARDIAN RFID and Clincher Extra Wide RFID wristbands, we've been able to improve compliance for jail standards -- as well as our defensibility -- by automating our medication administration records," said Jim Spain, Jail Administrator of Lemhi County Sheriff's Office in Salmon, Idaho. "The system helps us gain operational consistency by prompting us to perform tasks we ordinarily might have failed to do on time, prior to deploying GUARDIAN RFID."

Laminated Clincher wristbands securely store inmate ID information such as name, ID number, photo, bar code, and RFID microchips. The new extra wide design provides a stronger laminated seal to prevent water penetration and delamination over time, saving jailers resources and time from re-banding inmates. The wristbands are constructed from a heavy duty, multi-laminate material and feature single-use locking snaps to prevent tampering and to protect inmate data.

"Clincher Extra Wide wristbands with GUARDIAN RFID have given our detention facilities the ability to work more efficiently by eliminating paper-based logging, building staff accountability and improving communication," said Captain Clayton Edwards of White County Sheriff's Office in Searcy, AR. "Unlike bar coding, RFID is faster, easier to use, and far more defensible because the unique tags cannot be duplicated. This helps our department streamline operations, as we have 300+ inmates in custody on any given day with high-volume inmate movement and activity logging requirements."

Clincher inmate ID wristbands are available in eight highly-visible colors to classify inmates by offenses, high-risk status and medical conditions. Using bar codes and RFID technology, Clincher helps to improve timely procedures such as inmate transfer, head count and medication administration. The ID system also has photo ID capabilities to aid in visual verification and compatibility with video imaging systems.
