A penal institution without concrete walls and iron bars

The security of this center is ensured through the diligent care taken for security by well-trained staff as well as hi-tech devices such as various types of sensors, closed circuit cameras, electric locks, and an internal inmate tracking system. The center is surrounded by multiple fences and equipped with various types of sensors to enhance the security level. The exterior of the fences is covered by plants such as ivy to block viewing from the outside while creating harmony with the surrounding environment. Shatter-resistant tempered glass is used for the windows of the facility such as the residential areas of the inmates to ensure security while maintaining a sufficient outside view from the rooms and adequate lighting, and thus enabling inmates to live in an environment which is closed off from general society but with a reduced sense of imprisonment.

Tracking system for inmates, staff and visitors

Everyone on the premises - including employees of the private sector, prison officers and visitors - is provided with a wireless tag that allows for real-time monitoring of their location. The wireless tag and a biometrics system are used to determine the inmates, movements and increase the effectiveness of the duties of prison officers while reducing their workload. When an inmate needs to be escorted to a hospital or other facilities, a tracking system incorporating GPS and communications functions is used. At the same time, additional security measures are implemented to prevent escape and other such incidents.
