The Philippines' Department of Justice launched a biometric prison management system to keep track of inmates' identities and movements. The Inmate Management Information System has been designed to record prisoners' biometric information and automatically compute both their duration of remaining sentence and good conduct time allowance (GCTA).The fingerprint-based system was launched at the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa City on Wednesday at a ceremony in the at Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) compound led by Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.”The IMIS will be a game changer in the DOJ's efforts to improve the custody, safekeeping and rehabilitation of prisoners,” said De Lima, reported GMA News.”Accurate information readily available to custodians and corrections officers can very well help in applying the proper interventions for security and rehabilitation purposes,” she added. “The system is also designed to monitor inmate movements within corrections facilities.”
