FRESNO, Calif., April 23, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Continental Prison Systems, Inc. (Pink Sheets:CPSZ), dba EZ Card & Kiosk, the industry leader for taking city and county jails "cashless", has completed the installation and training of the EZ Technology line-up of products and services for Ingham County (Mason), Michigan.

Ingham County jail, with over 660 beds, has two kiosks deployed at their facility and plans to add the EZ Exit debit card within 2-3 months.

The EZ Technology line-up, which will eventually take the Ingham County Jail "Cashless", currently includes one kiosk for EZ Money Load in the lobby area of the jail, allowing friends and family to place money into the inmate's trust account, using cash, credit card or debit card.  

The other kiosk is located in the booking area, assisting the jail by receiving the cash and coin from the inmate at the booking step, as well as allowing the inmate access to the EZ Bail feature, which can be initiated using cash, credit and debit cards. 

Both EZ Money Load and EZ Bail can also be accessed on-line or a toll-free 24/7 bilingual number, which accepts credit and debit cards.  

When Ingham County turns-on the EZ Exit debit card service in the future, it will allow the jail to issue PIN-based debit cards to all released inmates, eliminating the usual paper check from the facility.

About Continental Prison Systems, Inc.

Continental Prison Systems, Inc. (CPSZ), dba EZ Card & Kiosk, is the first kiosk, internet payment and release debit card provider to successfully introduce a full-suite solution for the "Cashless Jail."  The company offers innovative solutions to city and county jails designed to streamline and reduce many of the operational and personnel costs required to properly manage a major segment of detention facilities. When offering its proprietary software, teamed with customized kiosk hardware and remote secure website technology, EZ Card & Kiosk creates a system for jails for the booking process of collecting and depositing cash holdings of a new inmate; bail by kiosk or remote website; money load by an inmate's family and friends to make deposits into their trust account by kiosk or remote website; and issuing the inmate's money at the time of their release via the EZ Exit Card, a PIN-based debit card.  The kiosks are secure and designed with user friendly interfaces. The goal is to help convert the jail into a "cashless" environment through the use of kiosks for in-coming cash and the issuance of a debit card to an inmate at the time of his/her release. In doing so, the facility is relieved from repeatedly handling cash, further reducing personnel time and expense, as well as errors and fraud.
