“We are proud to partner with Trinity to offer our customers a paperless, convenient and efficient way to provide commissary ordering using Telmate Tablets,” said Chief Marketing Officer, Jeff Hansen. Telmate Tablets are wireless, corrections-grade, 7″ tablets designed for inmate commissary ordering as well as other services such as educational resources, legal research, messaging, photo sharing and entertainment.

For inmates, commissary ordering using Telmate Tablet technology simplifies the process of purchasing daily necessities including everything from soap and snacks to socks, and more. For facilities, automating this service allows them to control and monitor items being taken in and out of pods, which aids in the both the detection and prevention of contraband.

According to Trinity Vice President of Technology Solutions, Patrick Tolliver, facilities find in-pod kiosks to be expensive and limiting. But with the Telmate Tablet, these facilities now have the option to provide multiple devices per pod, increasing the ability for inmates to access their accounts and order commissary.

“The Telmate Tablet shared model is ideal for the needs of the jail population,” Tolliver said, “making it easier for inmates to communicate with friends and family while giving them the freedom to query their commissary balances and order status.” He added that the real-time access, flexibility and freedom is simply not available with any other device on the market.
