The AB/NT District requires a Work Alone Protection Service (WAPS) for approximately 100 employees of CSC who conduct community visits with conditionally released offenders and/or their families, employers, friends, acquaintances. The WAPS system must be compatible with the current government blackberry devices in use without requiring modifications. The system must be easy to use and is required 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
Provide a WAPS system that allows CSC employees to leave a message as to their location when they conduct community visits with conditionally released offenders and/or their families, employers, friends and acquaintances. This system will produce an alarm if a community visit is not ended in the system within a specified time period.
