Many probation officers (POs) have difficulty managing the large number of probation clients assigned to them, and client-to-PO ratios of 100:1 and 125:1 are not uncommon.
The AB Kiosk™ addresses this problem by offering a fully automated way to manage probation check-ins for low-risk offenders. The AB Kiosk probation-monitoring system streamlines and strengthens check-ins for low-risk offenders while encouraging closer supervision of high-risk offenders.
The Kiosk can be located in the lobby outside the secure area of a jail or courthouse, eliminating the need for staff to clear dozens of people per day. Jurisdictions can also network several Kiosks, offering multiple locations for check-ins and easing the check-in burden on the client. Perhaps most importantly, it enables POs to separate low- and high-risk offenders throughout the probation process, reducing contact between the two groups and lessening the negative influence of high-risk offenders.
A probation officer can upload his or her list of probationers into the Kiosk’s Offender Management System in just a few minutes. POs can then sort their lists by assigning clients to specific check-in frequencies and customizing the monitoring/check-in process to their style of supervision:
Use the Kiosk to gather client information:
The AB Kiosk is tightly integrated with its Offender Management Software, and provides an effective means of tracking the success of probation programs.
By completely automating the process for a large portion of a PO’s workload, the AB Kiosk makes POs more effective, enhancing the safety of the community and reducing recidivism.
