Orange County's jail system will soon feature a full suite of EZ Card & Kiosk's bail and transaction kiosks. The third most populous county in the State of California, and sixth most populous county in the United States, received four kiosks April 26, according to a company press release. Within the next two weeks, EZ Card & Kiosk will activate the bail service, which allows inmates, as well as family and friends, to post bail via the lobby kiosks, using cash or credit/debit card, or through an online service from anywhere in the world, using credit or debit card.
Shortly thereafter, the Money Load feature will activate, allowing friends and family to place money into the inmate's trust account via the lobby kiosks or online services. EZ Exit Debit Card service will follow, providing the jail with the convenience of issuing a debit card upon release, for the balance of the inmate's trust account, making the inmate's money readily available for their personal use.
"The entire CPSZ Team has been working together over the past 15 months to earn the business and contract from a prestigious county jail system like Orange County," Ron Hodge, CEO of Continental Prison Systems Inc., EZ Card's parent company, said in the release. "We appreciate their confidence and trust, and will do our best to provide the services and customer support that allows the county jail management and staff to recognize the personnel efficiencies, reduced overheads and streamlined operations associated with a county jail system this large. We view this as the beginning of a long relationship that is beneficial for both parties."
