What is Tartarus™?

Tartarus™ is a prison management system that is designed to assist in automating the processes of managing a prison. By using a prison management system, governments can ensure that the inefficiencies of older manual systems no longer stand in the way of ensuring prisoners are indeed where they need to be.

All of this runs on the robust BII™ architecture, which allows collected information to be shared across multiple applications.

Why do I need it?

Tartarus™ makes it easy to enroll and identify enrolled prisoners using biometrics. It provides a higher level of security by ensuring a prisoner's identity and are therefore managed properly before, throughout, and after their incarceration.

How does it work?

Tartarus™ provides the following set of functions:
  • Prison Management System will be used by all the prisons across the country to share a common database
  • Streamline the capture of data by using computers with unified intake forms
  • Capture biometric information of all prisoners so identification can easily be performed at all facilities
  • Searching of prisoner records via biographical and biometric information in order to properly identify prisoners across the prison system
  • Provide extensive reports so as to gain information on prisoners in the system (i.e., crimes committed, length of sentence, release date, etc.)

Who uses it?

Tartarus™ is used by national, state, and county governments, who need a robust, secure system to enroll, identify and manage prisoners. Tartarus™ is a customizable system which can be adapted for any organization's needs.


Tartarus™ uses the following components:

  • Booking – Controls the intake or re-entry of an inmate into the system; maintains a central criminal history of all inmates, including detailed demographics
  • Court Case Tracking – Records the legal orders authorizing inmate custody, and maintains the custody status of each inmate
  • Property Management – Tracks all items of inmate property held by the prison and facility property issued to the inmate; full history of transactions is maintained
  • Incidents and Disciplinary – Used to create a ‘case’ for each reportable incident.  Records essential details such as the type of incident, offenders and/or staff involved, location, and action taken. After these details are saved, an incident evaluation may be completed. The incident questionnaire and evaluation process are configurable and can be specific to the incident type being reported
  • Visitations – Schedules and manages inmate visitation. An authorized visitor list is mandatory
  • Transportation – Facilitates the transportation of inmates between jails or facilities for events such as court appearances and medical treatments, helping simplify the scheduling of inmate movements, and reduce staff burden
