Agency-Based Programs

Our innovative products and services for agency-based programs can have a dramatic impact on an agency’s bottom line. Sentinel’s depth of expertise and breadth of operations support a scalable model with a significantly lower per-client rate compared to agency-run, fully-funded in-house programs. The savings we create are passed on to the agency.

Sentinel provides the benefits of a fully funded and operational offender-management program while creating substantial cost savings.

Our Services Include the Following

Comprehensive Case Management

Sentinel’s full-service case management model provides a comprehensive compliment of tools to efficiently and effectively tracking offenders.
Our experienced case management staff is based locally to assist in all phases of the participant’s probation period. Sentinel’s case management program consists of multiple steps that begin when an offender is referred to the program: pre-enrollment, orientation/intake, on-going compliance verification and ultimately, completion.
Our case managers handle the entire spectrum of day-to-day activities associated with verifying a participant’s compliance. This rigorous oversight leads to successful outcomes for the participant and the agency.

Electric Monitoring Platforms

As a leading national provider of electronic monitoring equipment and monitoring platforms, Sentinel offers a full array of electronic home/curfew monitoring equipment. Multiple check-in verification options include:

  • Stand-Alone Kiosks
  • RF (Radio Frequency) Monitoring Devices
  • Active, Hybrid and Passive GPS Tracking Devices
  • Voice Verification Platforms

These solutions are monitored from Sentinel’s state-of-the-art 24/7/365 National Monitoring Center and are supported by secure, web-based software platforms that conveniently exchange data with the supervising agency.

Evidence-Based Treatment With Corrective Thinking

Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) is a treatment strategy that seeks to decrease recidivism among juvenile and adult criminal offenders by increasing moral reasoning. Sentinel’s MRT program uses via cognitive-based therapy, one of the nation’s leading anti-recidivism mechanisms. MRT attempts to change how offenders make decisions and judgments by raising their moral reasoning abilities.

Substance-Abuse Monitoring

Sentinel provides drug testing services to participants with court-ordered regular or random drug testing. Sentinel provides five-, six- or twelve-panel drug testing and will also provide lab confirmation of positive results with proper chain of custody procedures.

Centurion Kiosk Service

Our Centurion kiosk allows program participants to perform monthly check-ins and submit court-ordered fees to facilitate compliance with their sentence. In addition, program participants can pay fines, fees and restitution at Sentinel kiosks.

Sentinel’s Centurion Kiosk service allows payments to be made 24/7/365 from remote locations with cash, credit and debit cards. All transactions are processed and updated in our SenTrak™ database in real time. Kiosks can be placed in courts, probation and parole offices, sheriff stations, and Sentinel field offices.
Centurion Kiosks can also be used for correctional agency services. The Kiosk platform is powered by our proprietary SenTrak™ offender database, which can connects easily to Sentinel’s case management programs.

For jail facility applications, the kiosk can be used to collect inmate deposits. When located in a jail lobby, an inmate’s family member or loved one can make deposits to the inmate’s commissary account through the kiosk. The kiosk is a truly automated system that can operate 24 hours a day, which is beneficial when inmate relatives cannot visit the jail cashiers during normal business hours due to employment or other obligations.

Alcohol Monitoring

Sentinel’s comprehensive alcohol monitoring platforms allow supervising agencies to conduct real-time and passive alcohol testing on participants. Sentinel has been at the forefront of developing technology that has provided judges with more efficient and cost-effective sentencing options.
Sentinel’s comprehensive alcohol monitoring platforms include:

  • Deep-Lung Alcohol Testing Devices
  • Transdermal Alcohol Testing Devices

Like all Sentinel programs, our alcohol testing platforms are also monitored by our National Monitoring Center.
