In the last 3 months ISM has rolled out custody suites for no less than 4 different police forces. Each project has encompassed installing ISM’s patent protected Genesys software (which facilitates the integration of many types and manufacture of third party equipment including CCTV matrix and access control systems) and Ultimate 3000 audio exchange which provides solutions for intercom and cell call systems. Said Stephen Smith, Sales and Marketing Director, “For each custody suite we installed cell call, affray, CCTV, digital recording, public address and integration to locking systems.”

One of the police forces, Chelmsford Police Station made the headlines with news on their police custody suite ‘revamp.’ Images of the cameras ‘keeping a watch on every single one of the cells in the custody suite’ thanks to Genesys were featured alongside the article. Genesys was described as “a state of the art computer system…this enables any custody sergeant to electronically oversee any aspect of the suite, including controlling the lights and if necessary, stopping the toilet from flushing to preserve any evidence that may be disposed of that way.”

Chief Inspector Joe Wrigley was quoted as saying that “the new suite means that police officers can patrol the town in a more efficient way, returning to the streets more quickly after taking a detainee to a local suite rather than having to travel to another.”
Each one of the four suites was completed on time and to budget.
