Monitor Institutions is an integrated component of the Monitor product suite. A jail management system, Monitor Institutions is built to also provide management of persons housed in different types of facilities such as juvenile detention, work release, half way houses, day reporting centers, and residential centers.
Multiple facilities with different types of populations can be maintained and the configuration options allow an agency to tailor the functionality and use of the system to their type of facility and population. Loryx Systems is currently expanding the functionality of the system to support institutions at the state Department of Corrections level.
Monitor includes comprehensive intake functionality. Users can record placements (detentions/bookings) into a facility. All key booking, placement and release information can be recorded, including type of intake, arresting or referral source, case/charges, searches, record checks and other key data. Personal information on each individual can be collected, and Monitor includes the ability to perform needs screening and risk assessments. Personal property can be catalogued. Non-associations can be established between individuals to ensure proper housing placement.
To ensure effective management of residents, Monitor includes numerous management roster screens that allow staff to effectively manage all aspects of housing a person in a facility. Roster screens include a Facility Resident Log that allows staff to view all residents or detainees. Key information, including type of placement, custody status, expected release date, age, sex, and classification level is displayed. Staff members have the ability to select and sort client records according to their needs for each facility. Other roster screens cover areas such as Booking, Release, Visitation, Transportation, and Shift Log.
Monitor allows staff to record all important information regarding facility activities, including bed checks, visitation, property, grievances, sentencing credits and time forfeitures, room transfers, transport, and incident tracking.
Agencies operating a facility from jails to re-entry programs generally provide various social services and/or place residents in special programs including alternatives to detention (such as Electronic Monitoring) or classes. There is no limit to the number or types of programs that can be set up (e.g. counseling sessions, education, or drug treatment). Attendance, attitude, program requirements, and other information can be tracked for each person. Monitor also includes a Classes function that allows an agency to set up a schedule of classes for a person and provides views from both the individual (all classes for which the individual is assigned) and class/program perspective (all individuals assigned to a specific class).
In addition to special programs and classes, Monitor Institutions includes functions found in our other systems including Assessments, Case Plans, Memos, Hearings, Drug Tests, and the Journal.
