Technology to expedite release processes
When an inmate is released from a facility, the process for returning their funds can be burdensome for the accounting department and involves lengthy staff involvement for releasing funds. GTL’s innovative technology allows correctional facilities to streamline the release process through a suite of easy-to-use products.
In lieu of the traditional release check, the GTL ExpressRelease® Debit Card provides a way for correctional facilities to release inmates from custody with a prepaid debit card that has been loaded with funds from their account. Newly released inmates get the convenience and protection of a debit card, and correctional facilities are able to remove inmate funds from their books at release rather than waiting until the released inmate cashes their check.
All customer service for the GTL ExpressRelease Debit Card is handled by the debit card provider, so efficiencies are gained not only at the time of release but also after release. A key advantage is that the GTL ExpressRelease Debit Card program is available to correctional facilities at no cost!
The GTL ExpressRelease® solution includes convenient deposit options for posting bond or bail for low-risk offenders. The GTL ExpressRelease solution offers multiple ways to make such payments – both remotely and in-person – providing greater convenience for families and friends of low-risk offenders.
