PENNSAUKEN, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/10/14 -- Lattice Incorporated (OTCQB: LTTC) ("Lattice" or the "Company"), a cloud-solutions provider of inmate management network systems for correction facilities, completed the installation of 36 video visitation stations at the Calaveras County Jail in San Andreas, California.
The Calaveras County Jail project, which included a lobby kiosk system for visitor scheduling, is Lattice's second completed installation in California. In January, Lattice announced the completion of a 200-station video visitation system at the Adelanto Detention Center in San Bernardino. The California corrections market accounts for nearly 10% of the total inmate population in U.S., and according to the Washington Post, in an effort to reduce significant overcrowding in California's prisons, Gov. Jerry Brown has proposed spending $500 million on the construction of new facilities across the state.
"Our previously announced installation in San Bernardino gave us a foothold in the Southern California market. With the addition of Calaveras County, we have now extended our service footprint across the state into Northern California," stated Paul Burgess, CEO of Lattice. "Our unique technologies have proven to reduce management costs for corrections facilities of all sizes, and as California and other states continue to deal with inmate overcrowding issues and budget constraints, we believe we are well positioned to provide the necessary solutions to offset these challenges."
Lattice's video visitation system, a component of the Company's proprietary ICON platform, provides web-based communications for friends and family to communicate with inmates from their home, office, or anywhere equipped with a computer, internet access, and webcam, providing a convenient alternative to traveling to correctional facilities for on-site visitations.
ICON is Lattice's proprietary integrated communications system for correctional facilities, offering telephone calls, voicemail, video visitation, e-mail, text messaging, and social media. The platform also includes a facility management and accounting package that enables efficient management of all prison processes, including telephone calls, commissary purchases, point-of-sale kiosks, biometrics, booking, incident reporting, and more. ICON's automated payment processing, billing, and accounting features reduce administrative overhead for corrections facilities. ICON is designed to improve efficiency and accountability for correctional facilities ranging from large multi-facility operators to small individual facilities.
