Technological Improvements


Enhanced Operations / Digital Technology


The Jackson County Jail and its staff members are utilizing a dynamic training program to improve jail services and enhance the criminal justice system. Through the leadership of the Jail Commander, Bob Vogt and Mike Colburn, the Jackson County Jail has implemented both strong and innovative technologically based systems to assist them in this endeavor.
Through the use of computerized digital photographic imaging, photographic reproduction costs have been eliminated. The digital images have assisted both City and County investigators to enhance crime-solving means. The system has reduced storage requirements while increasing accessibility 24 hours a day.

Live Scan Fingerprinting


The implementation of live scan fingerprinting has increased efficiency of fingerprint technology. The capability of viewing the fingerprint prior to submission to the Michigan Department of State Police Central Records Division has eliminated the constant return of unsubmittable fingerprints. In the near future this system will be capable of submitting the fingerprints to the Automated Fingerprint Identification System and receive immediate returns. This will allow for the immediate submission and identification of suspects as well as solvency of dated crimes.
