Article:
Los Angeles County Jail was recently awarded the County’s 23rd Annual Productivity and Quality Award for the implementation of Keefe Group’s The Edge® inmate kiosk. This honor is given to award-winning projects that represent the finest innovations in County public service by increasing productivity, producing cost benefits and improving quality service.

The Los Angeles County Jail sought to find an alternate technology-driven solution that would revolutionize the commissary process and increase efficiencies over a paper-based commissary delivery system. They found their desired cutting-edge solution with the implementation of Keefe Group’s The Edge® inmate kiosks.

The benefits of this transition include increased efficiency, ease of use and time savings realized by affording inmates instant access to their trust account balances. Inmates also have fewer questions and complaints to custodial staff. Furthermore, less time is spent ordering and delivering commissary products and services and fewer paper products are being consumed. Inmates now have the ability to make numerous additions and deletions to their orders before delivery date. And finally, The Edge® kiosks have alleviated language barriers in the ordering process and ensured equity in services offered.

Los Angeles County is one of the first mega jails in the country to implement the advanced, inmate-accessible information system offered by Keefe Group’s The Edge® inmate kiosk, the most widely used inmate kiosk solution in the correctional industry.
