Continental Prison Systems to Install Cashless Transaction Kiosks in Three New Jails in Minnesota

IRVINE, Calif., May 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Continental Prison Systems, Inc. (OTC:CPSZ) - a payment processing technology company that specializes in the $500 billion government payment space, is pleased to announce that it has contracted with St. Louis County in the State of Minnesota to install its cashless transaction kiosks in three separate jails within the county, including Duluth's facility. Under the terms of the agreement, Continental Prison Systems will implement various 'cashless transaction' services via a booking room kiosk, a lobby kiosk, and using the EZ Card and Kiosk release debit card program.

"We have been working diligently to gain traction in the Minnesota market and now we have contracted for three separate installations," stated Ronald Hodge, CEO, Continental Prison Systems. "Due to its size, the St. Louis County Jail in Duluth, MN will be the anchor account."

"We are hopeful that Minnesota will follow other states where our initial installations were followed by other installations in the state as has been the case in Colorado, Utah, and Michigan," added Hodge. "It is becoming evident that our two-prong approach to signing new accounts by using our internal sales team and channel partners is the quickest way to increased market share."
