HMP officers warned when a banned visitor is recognised
Police confirmed they have caught a man who went on the run. The man, described as “insulin dependent” and now goes under the name of Philip Whiteman, absconded from his secure facility. He married a nurse while he was a patient at high-security Rampton Hospital in 2008 and had also been a patient at Broadmoor. He was located safely and returned to a secure hospital after a day on the run.
Access Control UK has a unique, low cost Prison Pass PC computer based system that allows prison officers to quickly check the identity of contractors or visitors and monitor their movements. This is a first class system which is used by many prisons around the country. Prison Pass will also provide the prison officer with a warning when a banned or cautioned visitor is recognised. A Biometric Fingerprint Reader can also be installed for extra security to provide indisputable proof that the guest is who they say they are.
