What brings us together ?

Statistics from DOJ
‡ Of the 272,111 persons released from prisons in 15 States in 1994, an estimated 67.5% were rearrested for a felony or serious misdemeanor within 3 years, 46.9% were reconvicted, and 25.4% resentenced to prison for a new crime. ‡ The 272,111 offenders discharged in 1994 accounted for nearly 4,877,000 arrest charges over their recorded careers. ‡ Sex offenders were less likely than non-sex offenders to be rearrested for any offense ±± 43% of sex offenders versus 68% of non-sex offenders.

The Magic Number

~ 40%
Almost 40% of the prison population are repeat offenders. Some of our clients came up with a perfect euphemism for these offenders ± ³The frequent flyers´

‡ The same criminals are coming back to the jails over and over again ‡ The same visitors are also coming back over and over again

Releasing the wrong inmate

Swap badge with someone else being released

Pretend to be someone else with false badge

Releasing officer fails to prevent because of ethnic diversity or sophisticated execution

Need for localized AFIS

1 2 3

Prompt identification of returning offenders Release the right inmate not his friend Ensure security & prompt visitor processing

M2SYS¶s Strategy
Hybrid Biometric Platform (HBP) is an enterprise-ready biometric recognition system that supports fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein, and iris biometrics. HBP is plug-and-play with any of these biometric modalities, ensuring near 100% read rates for any biometric technology implementation.

‡ One integration provides access to an enterprise-ready, Hybrid BiometricsŒ system ‡ Immediately utilize fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein, and iris recognition ‡ Unlike four, separate low-level SDKs, Hybrid Biometric PlatformŒ is pre-built, scalable, easily integrated, and lowers total cost of ownership ‡ Ensure 100% read rates, regardless of environmental, demographic, or other factors that negatively impact some forms of biometrics

GTL¶s Strategy 
Latest Correctional Applications and Consumer Payment Technology  Products/Services that Increase Call Volume and Improve Satisfaction  Tools that Increase Efficiency and Effectiveness of Investigations  Applications that Increase Efficiency and Effectiveness for the DOC and Friends and Families
