Palmer Correctional Center previously used "ID cards that inmates were required to carry in their pockets," said the facility's Purchaser Kenny Moss. This posed a problem as inmates were able to switch ID cards. The facility chose to "make the move to Clincher® wristbands in 2001 because we needed to get a positive ID—no mistakes," Moss said.
Moss is currently involved in the planning stages of a new facility to house 1800 inmates. His choice of product for the new site? "We'll be using Clincher® V photo ID wristbands for our identification system," he said.

Without an identification system in place, workers at the Warren County Jail "did not have a way of knowing which inmate was which," said Jailer Jackie Strode.
Looking for help, Strode found PDC's 800-number in a correctional trade magazine. "I worked with a sales representative who was very helpful, and I ordered the product which we agreed was best for my jail," he said.
Since using Clincher® II inmate ID wristbands, Strode said he feels "much more secure with the identification process now. The wristbands are a great help and time saver when we need to give out medications, go to court, or when an inmate is released."

Before discovering Clincher® wristbands, the Marshall County Sheriff Jail maintained a physical photo file for each inmate. "Getting a good ID for long term inmate classification was difficult," said Chief Larry Lowe, "as we did not have an efficient identification system in place."
The jail was introduced to Clincher® at an American Correctional Association (ACA) trade show in 2000, and has been using Clincher® II bands ever since. "Our facility's name is custom imprinted on the wristbands and special information (such as medication) is typed directly on the bands," said Lowe.
"We save time and have better control of classification as we use different color wristbands for different groups. Now each inmate receives a wristband upon booking which provides the staff with a highly visible identification system, as well as substantial time savings," said Lowe.
