iSECUREtrac Announces New Contract With Craven County, North Carolina

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwire - August 19, 2009) - iSECUREtrac Corp. (OTCBB: ISEC), an industry leader in electronic monitoring solutions, announced today that Craven County, NC signed a contract for active GPS.

The Craven County Board of Commissioners agreed to use the systems as a way to cut budget expenditures and ease prison overcrowding. The Craven program is targeting non-violent offenders with the possibility of expanding to non-child support cases and work release programs.

"The program is intended to ease taxpayer burden and continue to provide safety to our community. To monitor an offender in Craven County Jail for one year it costs $16,425. To monitor that same offender with GPS monitoring systems it costs $4,380," said Lt. Lee Thomas of the Craven County Sheriff's Office.

iSECUREtrac's active GPS notifies officers if the offender is not complying with the terms of his or her release. iSECUREtrac's web-based software plots out where the offender has been in the community. Officers are able to set up parameters where offenders are allowed to go such as work and treatment areas that the offender should not be near such as schools or known gang hang outs. The officer is notified in near real-time if the offender ventures into an exclusion zone or tries to cut off the monitoring system.

"GPS monitoring systems provide a wealth of information that can help Craven County manage program compliance and reinforce those positive behaviors necessary for a successful transition from incarceration to community re-entry," said Peter Michel, President and CEO of iSECUREtrac Corp.
