Zhongshan City Adopts Blockchain System To Track Inmates

The Chinese city of Zhongshan may have found a new way to put blockchain technology to good use, the government of the city has rolled out a blockchain chased project aimed at helping to track and monitor ex-prisoners who have been released on paroles in their day-to-day parole dispensations.
According to local news (reported by Zhongshan Daily), the announcement was made by the Municipal Bureau of Justice. According to them, the system will help supervise the parolees as they continue in the corrective post-jail period.
The new system also enables real-time management, in order to understand the community inmates’ online life. The data and relevant information of the parolees are published on the platform and can easily be seen, allowing for mutual supervision and enhancement of community correction. Since the ex-prisoners have their data updated daily, law enforcement personnel’s who have access to these records will be able to know the whereabouts of the parolees at any point in time and will be able to know when any one of them is breaking the law.
The current “blockchain” technology uses the highest level of an encryption algorithm, to ensure valid and reliable information on the chain to the maximum extent. Thus, it will be easy to locate the community inmates daily and track their whereabouts. The blockchain system will also be able to reduce the stress of a law enforcement agency having to monitor the community inmates everywhere. With this upgrade, regular reporting of human factors will be reduced.
The system has been made available to all community’s service centers used by the ex-convicts, where they report their daily activities. Monitoring of the inmates will be useful as they make a reentry into the community.
Zhongshan, however, would not be the first Chinese state to adopt blockchain technology into its legal system. Early this year, Guangzhou’s Chancheng District rolled out a new blockchain-enabled project (in Chinese) for community supervision and correction of ex-prisoners, parolees, and probationers. According to the Guangzhou’s model, upon the completion of their community service, the ex-prisoners who have a higher credit rating in the system would get a better chance of finding employment, getting loans and accomplishing other tasks once difficult for ex-offenders.
China is moving swiftly in its adoption of blockchain technology into different aspects of their governance.
