Probation Check In is a product of Check In Systems specifically designed to work with probation officers, pre-trial officers and many other staff members that make up the offices of criminal justice system. Using a lobby kiosk, each visitor can document the visit and notify the officer or staff member needed.
Probation officers often live behind secure doors. Probation Check In gives a way to notify officers when a person is waiting in the lobby, beyond those secure doors.
Probation Check In can notify officers when a person has arrived and is waiting in the lobby. Text messaging allows officers to be anywhere and still get notified.
The information and timestamps collected by Probation Check In provides valuable documentation and reports. These reports are used to in management, offender files and court rooms.
The Apple iPad is a very stable and low maintenence touch screen that everyone is familiar with. Customers are familiar with the touch and feel of cell phones and tablets. This means they have no reservation about using it. We frame it in a secure kiosk stand and it can be mounted on the wall, set on the counter top or used as a stand alone kiosk.
As customers sign in, the information is passed to the live displays. Staff members can acknowledge, message and check out the customers as they are taken care of. Each step is time stamped for management reporting and statistics.
The American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) is an international association composed of members from the United States, Canada and other countries actively involved with pretrial, probation, parole and community-based corrections, in both criminal and juvenile justice arenas. All levels of government including federal, state/provincial, local and tribal agencies are counted among its constituents. By taking the initiative, APPA has grown to become the voice for thousands of pretrial, probation and parole practitioners and providers of services including line staff, supervisors and administrators from both the public and private sectors. Educators, volunteers, victim service providers, concerned citizens and others with an interest in criminal and juvenile justice are also among APPA members.
APPA provides training and technical assistance including a journal, monographs and guidebooks, research, information clearinghouse services and advocacy for its constituents and constituent partners. Many of the county and state probation officers and management utilize APPA educational seminars. APPA presents twice annually, attracting 300-1000 community correction related employees.
Check In Systems supports the membership of APPA with discounts. Members can receive $100 off the first year software subscription.
