Norfolk County Sheriff Installs Inmate Kiosk
The automated kiosk – similar to an ATM – allows a person to deposit funds in an inmate’s canteen or phone account using cash or a credit card.
A sign of the times, inmates' family and friends can now deposit money in phone or canteen accounts via swipe of a card in the South Shore.
As part of his ongoing efforts to make his office even more consumer user-friendly for the general public, Norfolk County Sheriff Michael G. Bellotti has installed a new inmate account kiosk in Quincy.
The new kiosk is located in the front lobby at Sheriff Bellotti’s Community Corrections office at 191 Parkingway in Quincy. It is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The automated kiosk – similar to an ATM – allows a person to deposit funds in an inmate’s canteen or phone account using cash or a credit card.
“The new kiosk allows us to alleviate some of the traffic at our main facility in Dedham while simultaneously improving the convenience for people,” Sheriff Bellotti said.
Parking at the Quincy location is available in a rooftop lot atop 191 Parkingway.
“This installation of this kiosk reflects our philosophy of using the latest technologies to increase convenience,” Sheriff Bellotti said.
