To facilitate offender compliance with the conditions of their sentence, our Centurion kiosk allows program participants to perform monthly check-ins and submit court ordered fees. Program participants can pay fines, fees and restitution at a Sentinel kiosk. This service permits payments to be made 24/7/365 from remote locates with cash, credit and debit cards. All transactions are processed real-time and are updated in our SenTrak database. Kiosk machines can be strategically placed in courts, probation or parole offices, Sentinel field offices and sheriff stations.
Our Centurion kiosk system can provide various services for correctional agencies. Our kiosk platform is powered by our proprietary SenTrak offender database that allows various services used in our case management programs. Our kiosk applications, includes:
Banked Caseload Programs: For banked case load situations, the kiosk can replace less efficient mail-in formats where probationers are required to submit monthly mail-in vouchers. Our kiosk is able to exceed this model by having the offender check-in at the kiosk and fulfill requirements. Fingerprint identification technology is installed on kiosks to verify an offender's identity, as needed. Failures to report are notified to the agency the same business day. This allows for an increased response time by the officers for non-compliance.
Collection of Fees/Fines: The kiosk is also equipped with credit card and bill acceptor features which allow the unit to collect payments from participants. Using our SenTrak SQL database and a secure Internet connection, the offender's financial records are automatically updated upon receiving any authorized form of payment. The kiosk can collect payments on behalf of agencies for court fines, fees and victim resolution. All transactional and financial data can be uploaded to the agency system at anytime.
Inmate Deposits: For jail facility applications, the kiosk can be used to collect inmate deposits. When located in a jail lobby, an inmate's family member and loved one can make deposits to the inmate's commissary account through the kiosk. The kiosk is a truly automated system that can operate 24 hours a day - being beneficial in situations where inmate relatives cannot visit the jail cashiers during normal business hours due to employment or other obligations.
The kiosk offers the following advantages:
- Touch screen driven application
- Audio step-by-step instructions in multiple languages
- Low maintenance
- Simple set-up and installation
Kiosk technology is available in our offender-funded and agency-paid program.
