Effective Information Management is central to managing the modern Jail. The ability to share timely, accurate information with inmates, staff, citizens, and governmental stakeholders is of utmost importance.
Information is also the cornerstone of all jail operations.
The ability to schedule, track and execute correctly and efficiently demands the collection of timely accurate information readily available to users.

- It allows staff members to produce photo lineups from any participating JailTracker jail.
Centralized Data Storage
- Inmate, facility, and financial information captured by JailTracker is maintained in a centralized database.
