TAMPA, Fla., June 16, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — SmartKiosk today announces their new technology designed to reduce the cost of incarceration. Tax payers across the country are spending Billions of dollars annually to house and provide services to incarcerated people in U.S. jails and prisons. Little has been done to find ways to reduce those costs and still maintain the security that is necessary. The problems are complex and the solutions have been few.
Drugs and other contraband smuggled through the postal mail has hit epidemic levels. Letters, envelopes, stamps, photos and all other items mailed, are soaked in odorless, colorless, highly potent drugs and poisons. Unable to detect drug tainted mail, it is hand delivered by Deputies to inmates much like dealers on the street. Maintaining security and control is beyond challenging and expensive.
SmartKiosk announces their no cost solution. The world’s first patent pending, postal mail elimination system for corrections. SmartKiosk has been a pioneer in the corrections industry, implementing the first two-way email system ever used in a county jail. The latest addition to their multifunction SmartKiosk system is aimed to save millions in tax dollars, by allowing inmates postal mail to be delivered electronically as a copy through the SmartKiosk system.
Eliminating staff from sorting and hand delivering each piece of mail, while also eliminating contraband sent in the postal mail from ever reaching the inmate. Mail is processed by SmartKiosk at their regional receiving hubs and is instantly delivered to the inmates through the kiosk system inside the correctional facility, completely removing the task of mail from the agency. Large Department of Corrections such as Florida with 140 facilities, can deliver mail electronically to all locations, eliminating daily staff labor with postal mail at 140 facilities, saving millions of tax dollars each year.
Jon Logan, founder of SmartKiosk says “We are very excited about this new patent pending technology and the savings it will bring to every correctional agency at zero cost.”
He adds, “This system will eliminate tons of daily labor for agencies, document a searchable record of all postal mail, offering new monitoring tools as well as completely eliminate contraband from entering the facility by mail. Every governor and county sheriff could implement this technology at no cost and tighten up security while saving their tax payers millions.”
SmartKiosk is a Tampa, Florida based corporation formed in 2009, showing strong growth. The company specializes in innovative no cost corrections technology, designed to reduce operating cost by streamlining communications and leveraging technology to add efficiencies in daily operations.

SmartKiosk has a patent pending on the postal mail system they believe will revolutionize the Department of Corrections.
Reducing costs and improving security are top priorities of every state and county agency. This technology hits the mark for achieving both goals, all at no cost.
