Technological Improvements

Enhanced Operations / Digital Technology

The Jackson County Jail and its staff members are utilizing a dynamic training program to improve jail services and enhance the criminal justice system. Through the leadership of the Jail Commander, Anthony Stewart and Assistant Commander Mike Colburn, the Jackson County Jail has implemented both efficient and innovative technologically based systems to assist them in this endeavor.
Through the use of computerized digital photographic imaging, photographic reproduction costs have been eliminated. The digital images have assisted both City and County investigators to enhance crime-solving means. The system has reduced storage requirements while increasing accessibility 24 hours a day.

Live Scan Fingerprinting

The implementation of live scan fingerprinting has increased the efficiency of fingerprint technology. The capability of viewing the fingerprint prior to submission to the Michigan State Police Central Records Division has eliminated the constant return of unsubmittable fingerprints. The system will submit all fingerprints to the Automated Fingerprint Identification System and receive immediate returns of past criminal or warrants history. This will allow for the immediate submission and identification of suspects as well as solvency of dated crimes.
