MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Minnesota-based Precision Kiosk Technologies (PKT) (a long time POPAI Corporate Sponsor) announced today that the Marion Superior Court Probation Department has signed a two-year contract extension wherein PKT will provide and service seven AB KioskĀ® systems to autonomously coordinate and conduct probation check-ins among low-risk probation clients. Marion County began using AB Kiosk systems in October 2019 to enable its probation professionals to focus more attention on supervising higher-risk clients. As the COVID pandemic unfolded in 2020, the Kiosks served a vital service by eliminating the need for face-to-face interactions between the probation staff and their clients.

Today, Marion County has installed AB Kiosk systems in five Townships, as well as in the County Court Building and the Community Justice Center in Indianapolis. More than 1,200 Marion County probation clients have been assigned to execute regular probation check-ins using an AB Kiosk system. Over the last four years, Marion County Kiosks have autonomously conducted more than 33,000 probation check-ins, freeing up thousands of man-hours that were subsequently focused on directly supervising higher-risk probation clients.

The new agreement, which relies on close collaboration between Marion County judges and the Probation Department, will continue through October 1, 2025.
