BetaGov Research Report

From a three-month Cell Check System trial sponsored by BetaGov at the New York University Marron Institute of Urban Management:

Using Guard1, "100% of electronic cell checks were reported accurately."  Without Guard1, "only 56% of the checks were completed accurately".


"If Guard1 saves you one in-custody death lawsuit, it has paid for itself multiple, multiple times over."
