DSI / ITI now offers multiple solutions for the corrections industry including: Offender Management System (OMS) for managing facilities and offenders, Offender Communication System (OCS) for monitoring inmate phone calls, Call Track for managing low risk probation offenders and Call IQ for investigating the content of inmate phone calls, among others.

When we present our products to potential customers they quickly realize that the product was designed by their peers and consequently will meet their needs. The end result is that DSI / ITI technology is now installed in over 400 correctional facilities nationwide and that number continues to grow each year.”
