GTL’s Intelligence as a Service Leads the Corrections Market as a Proven Effective Forensic Tool

Intelligence Analysts enhance safety for correctional facilities and surrounding communities

Reston, Virginia (PRNewsWire) – June 16, 2016 – Global Tel*Link (GTL) , the leading provider of correctional technology solutions and an innovator in payment services solutions for government, today announced its Intelligence as a Service offering, a leading intelligence and forensic services solution setting new records and revolutionizing correctional services.

GTL Intelligence Analysts – trained and qualified professionals – operate at correctional facilities within on-premise GTL Fusion Centers. It is in these customer-housed, GTL-operated centers where analysts work with customers to maintain safe and secure environments by working to utilize industry proven strategies based on GTL software solutions and algorithms producing reliable, actionable intelligence.

“Intelligence as a Service is currently operating in three state Department of Corrections (DOC) representing 94 facilities. GTL will be rapidly expanding Intelligence as a Service in the upcoming months. GTL’s solution did not evolve from a staffing service, rather we strategically brought to market trained and certified analysts who complement our customer’s efforts to combat illicit activity,” said Chris Pickering, Intelligence as a Service Product Manager, supervising GTL Fusion Centers nationwide. “It isn’t enough to simply throw people at a problem. With GTL we supplement our customers with a proprietary approach to proactively stopping criminal behavior, and equally important we hold analysts accountable to developing actionable intelligence.”

Pickering’s strategy and vision are backed by his 25+ years in the law enforcement community. Prior to coming to GTL he served as Missouri’s Homeland Security Director. “Having served as Homeland Security Director and Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS) center Board Member, I’ve accumulated a vast understanding of the national, state and local landscape. Now, I am bringing this unique intelligence network and expertise to GTL where we’re constantly assessing and analyzing the environment, challenging assumptions and continuously seeking new insight.”

In this year alone, GTL Intelligence Analysts have performed over 100 forensic examinations of mobile devices and produced intelligence reports resulting in actions ranging from physical arrests, terminations, banned visitors and conduct violations. Making countless facilities across the nation safer for people inside the correctional facility and the communities which surround them. All of this adds up to one thing: GTL Intelligence as a Service is the most effective forensic solution on the market.
