Jail personnel can monitor with ease where prisoners are; what they are doing; whether they have had meals, medications, cell checks and mail; and a host of other things.

needs. Furthermore, they also were able to share with the Guardian staff ideas for making the system better. Ken and Greg were excited to receive the Arkansas feedback and input. Tey plan to implement many of the suggestions made during the conference. A good conference is one during which an attendee can receive useful information, share his or her ideas on how to improve something, and feel like the speakers are hearing their suggestions. For counties that are members of AACRMF, the Guardian system is a free benefit. And that’s not the only benefit of AACRMF membership. Member counties receive free codification of their county ordinances — a process that by law must be completed every five years. Metro Disaster Specialists also makes available to member counties their Peace of Mind (P.O.M.) program for emergency claim services. Finally, AACRMF has partnered with National Medtest to provide free drug testing for member counties’ CDL drivers. If you are an AACRMF member and have questions about any of these benefits, please contact me. If you are not a member of AACRMF and would like to have more information about this service, please also contact me. My phone number is (501) 372-7550; my email address is bcomet@arcounties.org.
