This security renovation of an urban 16 acre, 1200-bed jail facility originally built in 1976 began with an assessment report which resulted in a security replacement project phases as follows:
Phase 1 is for the replacement of most of the doors, many of the door frames, all control panels with touch screens, programmable logic controllers (PLC’s), uninterruptible power supplies (UPS’s), and selected portions of the system network cabling.
Phase 2 will provide call request stations for all of the cells, additional control panels, the replacement of the intercom system, and the creation of a new security electronics room.
Phase 3 will replace the existing analog video system with a new IP video system with recording and video review stations distributed throughout the facility.
Phase 4 will provide a new Central Control Room, network all of the housing officer’s stations together, provide a new touch screen system at CCR for remote control/take-over, and emergency operations.
All systems are fully integrated through the use of a PLC system.
This project requires a “Hot Cut-Over” from the original system to allow the new system to come online without interrupting normal operations.
