AB Kiosk In The News
Across the U.S., jail administrators are releasing inmates to reduce their jail populations as they plan for the arrival of the coronavirus. The AB Kiosk system can be used to monitor those inmates who are being released into the community.
Minneapolis-based Precision Kiosk Technologies, together with its exclusive Michigan service partner JSG Monitoring, announced today that Lenawee County has become the first county in Michigan to use the AB Kiosk® system to coordinate and conduct alcohol monitoring of DUI offenders and other clients of the court.
The AB Kiosk® solution is a secure, integrated system that fully automates alcohol screening, pre-trial services and probation check-ins, and effectively monitors participants in diversion, treatment, and work-release programs. This autonomous system significantly reduces administrative costs and frees up law enforcement, corrections, and probation personnel for higher value work.
The AB Kiosk system consists of two highly integrated components – an interactive stand-alone kiosk and an easy-to-use, client-management software program.
1 – Interactive Kiosk
Fully Automates Alcohol Monitoring and Probation Check-ins
The interactive AB Kiosk makes it easy for clients to conform to the requirements of their pre-trial release or sentencing. Typically located outside the secure area of a jail, courthouse, or treatment facility where is provides easy client access, the AB Kiosk can conduct up to 30 alcohol screenings or probation check-ins per hour, 24/7. This eliminates the need for deputies or supervisors to escort clients through security and conduct PBTs using handheld devices. Instead the Kiosk does all the work, and immediately uploads the results of the screening or check-in.

2 – Integrated Client-Management Software Program
The AB Kiosk Client-Management Software Program makes it easy automate every facet of your alcohol monitoring, pre-trial monitoring, and probation check-in programs:
- Simplifies client onboarding and management
- Collects client data through the kiosk to the PKT Admin management system

Deputies, supervisors and probation officers can monitor their clients and programs from their desktops, laptops or smartphones, and generate reports in just three clicks. During alcohol monitoring and probation check-ins, they can also present on-screen questions to clients and receive notifications as responses are posted.
