Many correctional agencies require minimal continued contact with their low-risk offenders. Some programs just ask participants to mail-in monthly progress reports. This simplistic approach, however, can open up the agency, and participant, to unnecessary problems. People miss deadlines – and the case officer can miss this when mixed in with more pressing issues in their caseload. Ineffective or inaccurate record keeping is common with paper-only updates.
Sentinel has created simple and cost-effective self-reporting programs and services to aid agencies with maintaining accurate and efficient reporting data. Solutions include smartphone apps and voice verification systems that can help with:
- Large caseload supervision
- On-site check-ins with case officers
- Self-check-in with identity verification programs
- Day Reporting Center programs
