The Maldives Correctional Service (MCS) has begun adopting a Prisoner Accounts Management System (PAMS) to efficiently monitor inmate funds.
According to the MCS, monthly payments from families given to prisoners and those under arrest via Bandeyri Pay, as well as payments to prisoners who work for wages, can be conveniently administered through PAMS.
PAMS is the accounting module of the Total Offender Management System, which the MCS already uses to store and administer all inmate records.
According to the MCS, the system will help them improve the quality of their job while also making their employees more responsible.
Both systems were created by MCS personnel in the IT department.
