Security Automation Systems, Inc. (SAS) was founded by veterans of the correctional electronic controls industry.
SAS specializes in providing and installing customized, automated security electronic control systems for correctional and other government facilities. Our controls engineering staff, drawing on decades of knowledge, has experience in working in all sizes and types of (occupied) facilities.
We have experience in working in small police departments with no holding cells, to multi-campus prison complexes that house thousands of inmates. Upgrading existing correctional electronic control systems is our specialty.
With little or no documentation on an existing system, we have the ability to retrofit a facility’s system using state-of-the-art, industry-standard control products.
These non-proprietary products improve the overall safety and efficiency of facilities, while ensuring long-term serviceability of the system. Security Automation Systems holds factory certifications from the manufacturers’ products that we install. SAS is fully insured and capable of providing pay/performance bonds for our projects.
The history of the Westville Correctional Facility, a Medium Security facility located in Westville, began in 1949.
Beatty Memorial Hospital, a state run mental health facility, opened its doors to 135 mentally disabled Hoosiers in February of 1951.
In 1974, Governor Otis Bowen and the Indiana legislature then transferred Beatty Memorial Hospital to the Department of Correction. In July of 1979, following renovations and additions, 1200 offenders were transferred to the Westville Correctional Facility. Today, the population is approximately 3,200.View ProjectSee All Projects
