Clayton County Georgia Sheriff’s office runs the Clayton County Jail, which was completed in 2000 and has a capacity of 1,920 inmates. Inside the jail, there are eight-96 cell, 192-bed housing units and eight-48-bed dormitories. With an on-site medical facility, the jail cost over $93,000,000 which was paid in full prior to occupation by a Special Local Option Sales Tax.
In the jail, deputies process 80 to 100 offenders each day. During check-in, deputies print up to 12 labels (over 1,000 per day), including one that was required to be cut to size to fit into their non-destructible wristbands. This process took a significant amount of time and created a great deal of waste according to Lt. Robert Pauls, who works in the administration of the jail. “We needed a system to print and cut a label at the same time to fit into the wristband” says Robert.
Based on this need, Robert went looking for an alternative printer; and found the Epson TM-C3400. Now the deputies print/cut and insert a 4” x 1” label with a picture into the inmate wristband.

“The label printer is saving us time and is much easier to use” says Robert. “You guys should exhibit at one of the industry tradeshows. I looked for a printer like the TM-C3400 at a recent show; but I did not see anyone exhibiting this type of device”.
Examples include the following:
With between 3,200 to 4,000 prisons and jails in the
, these institutions may be a great new opportunity for value added resellers to provide print-on-demand labels. With one county jail using over 1,000 labels per day, this market sounds like an opportunity. United States
