Kiosks for Prisons

Of course there are already heavy-duty kiosks that have been developed for industrial workplaces, these machines are called rugged kiosks and they are made from metal and are a very durable machine, and they are perfectly developed for their environment.

Prison kiosks would not only have to have protection for the screen, but would also need rubber edging on all edges of the machine to protect users and passers-by from injuring themselves on the kiosk.

The great thing about a prison kiosk is that it can provide access to a whole host of information for the prisoners and also for visitors to the prison.

Prison Information
Up to date ‘notice board’ of information.

Organisation Chart and rules
Show a list of rules of organisation chart within the centre

Feedback forms

The kiosks can provide a great range of information for courses available for prisoners to attend; it could even have an online booking form so that user could sign up to courses. Courses such as Open University can be accessed as well as GCSE level and basic Maths & English courses.

Job Vacancies
The kiosk could advertise prisoners job vacancies within the prison. There could also be an online form for users to put their name forward for these jobs. Prisoners could also create their own online CV where internal jobs, and educational courses could be added to create a CV for when they are released.

Health and wellbeing
The kiosks could offer information about common health issues, and drug addiction advice.

Information about rehabilitation could be accessed on the kiosks, with printable sheets of things that the users might need to consider before their release.

Access to legal services and advice

Printing Helpful Forms
The kiosk could print out forms for the users, such as housing application forms in readiness for their release.

Open Prisons
For Open prisons the kiosk can provide additional information such as: Travel info, information about the local area, local training and education opportunities, local jobs and where to go for help. Prisoners could also use the system to book themselves in and out of the prison as they start to get back to work.

Providing information access is one thing but the kiosk system must also be secure and provide a safe and restricted browsing environment. By limiting access to websites and other information except that which has been added to the system. By ensuring that the kiosk software prevents unauthorised or malicious use. And, by ensuring the kiosks cannot be used to create or encourage bullying or other unwanted actions.

In short, by placing rugged touch screen kiosks into prisons you can enable the prison population to help themselves to support and advice leading to rehabilitation and a successful reintroduction into society.
