US: Biometric kiosk-based check-in system replaces probation meetings


As inmates are released from prison in order to mitigate the public health and humanitarian threat posed by the coronavirus poses to a confined population, Minneapolis-based Precision Kiosk Technologies is highlighting its AB Kiosks, which can be used to replace riskier face-to-face meetings with electronic check-ins for newly-released inmates and those on probation, who can use the kiosks to set schedules and trigger reminder texts and emails. The kiosks use fingerprint recognition to verify each users' identity, and also capture photos and video footage; a built-in breathalyser can check compliance with court-mandated alcohol restrictions.
