The Millennium Patented Access Control System(PACS) has been successfully incorporated in hundreds of jails, prisons and detention centers throughout the country including some of the largest jail systems in the United States.
The Millennium Patented Access Control System is designed to withstand the severest physical and environmental punishments common to jail and prison segregation settings. The unique Millennium Patented Access Control System incorporates patented dual locking mechanism with a laser-cut unidirectional ratcheted slide mechanism. The Millennium Patented Access Control System is the only dual locking device of this kind available on the market today. The control release and return of the inmate can be achieved by using the inner ratcheted door opening, the officer can control the inmates hand while cuffing/releasing.
The food port of a cell door in a segregation unit can be one of the most dangerous places one encounters. The number of opportunities an inmate has to assault the employee through the food port are numerous. The opening of the port is frequent throughout the day.
Every time you open the food port, that offender has a golden opportunity to attack you with little worry about injury to himself. The most you can do against the offender is use O/C spray, but in all likelihood the inmate will have already set up a counter measure to protect himself from that.
The dangers: While feeding, passing books, exchanging clothes, taking them out for showers, etc. the inmate grabs your wrist and pulls you into the food port. From here he is able to break your arm in several different ways. He can break your hand, as well as your fingers. If you’re pulled in far enough, he can get a hold of your head and/ or hair. A head can fit through a food port, and it goes in easier than it comes out. The offender can reach out and grab your keys, O/C spray, or anything else on your belt. If he has your spray then he can use it against you and other officers while his food port is still open. He can use it against the movement team that comes into to get the spray back. This can happen to the officer’s keys as well. An officer’s set of keys makes one of the best weapons of opportunity one can think of. They can get ahold of the keys and use it to escape or make weapons with. Then there is the risk of bodily fluids being thrown at staff through an open food port. The inmate can throw urine, feces, blood, semen, and any combination thereof. These attacks by violent and unruly inmates can cause serious injuries and unnecessary dangers for the personnel outside the cell. By replacing the standard cell passage opening with our new Millennium Patented Access Control System, potential injuries and dangerous scenarios are virtually eradicated.
When personnel are injured on the job, expenditures usually rise because of incurred overtime to replace the injured personnel and medical costs incurred by the injured personnel. The Millennium Patented Access Control System saves money by reducing injuries to personnel by limiting the personnel's contact with violent and unruly inmates.
Defending frivolous law suits brought on by inmates alleging jail and prison personnel had used excessive force against them are costly occurrences municipalities face constantly. The Millennium Patented Access Control System saves municipalities money by reducing frivolous law suits brought by inmates by limiting the personnel's physical contact with violent and unruly inmates.
Millennium Access Control Technology created this Patented Access Control System with personnel safety in mind combining functionality with the highest level of security available through design. This is through effectively protecting personnel from direct contact with violent and destructive inmates.
