Cleveland County Sheriff to Introduce New Detainee Heart Monitoring System


4Sight Labs brings Silicon Valley innovation to public safety. At the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office, we are launching a new product, Custody Protect - our solution for helping prevent in-custody deaths. Custody Protect is intuitive and simple to use; it monitors and assesses the health and safety of persons in custody in real-time, allowing officers to go from arrest to rescue in the blink of an eye. This tool will be the new standard for Corrections and Law Enforcement professionals to assess arrestees' and inmates' critical safety needs. 

As highlighted by several high visibility events involving in-custody deaths, it is evident that more needs to be done to protect our citizens and give those responsible for protecting and serving new tools to preserve the health and safety of people during their most fragile state. Custody Protect is a new tool that Cleveland County's officers will be able to use to help prevent accidental deaths associated with alcohol withdrawals, drug overdoses, positional asphyxia, and suicides while in custody. The goal is to give officers the ability to identify the need for medical help sooner. 

It is time to restore trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve and protect. The use of Custody Protect takes a new step in that direction by helping prevent unnecessary deaths and increasing transparency and accountability throughout the arrest process, including the initial arrest, transportation of the custody, and continued monitoring in detention. Custody Protect is an innovative solution, and by using it, public safety professionals stand a better chance of saving lives, saving careers, and protecting communities.
