Central Booking

Booking Centers and PCPA Members,
The vendor who supplies the video arraignment component for the All-in-One booking workstation, Keyser Consulting Group, has offered a new version that allows us to sell the video arraignment unit for the booking centers at $602 less than the previous price. The new price would be $3,316.63, including installation, training, and one year maintenance support. Though optional for an Act 81 booking system, this is a dedicated HD video conferencing unit that completes the whole booking process, eliminating the need to physically transport the subject to the MDJ office for arraignment. And if the booking center is in the prison and the subject is to be incarcerated, there is no transport at all. It’s just a walk down the hall.

The combined full hand livescan and CPIN mugshot unit has been installed at all booking centers throughout the state. This all-in-one unit eliminates the need for two separate cabinets, saving booking room space, and provides significant costs saving in the purchase price as well as future maintenance costs.

In addition to the cost savings on the central booking equipment purchases and maintenance, the Central Booking program also provides consultation, on site surveys, user group meetings, and training, all at no cost, to any non state agency in Pennsylvania. This covers anything related to establishing and maintaining a central booking site.

Contact Jerry Miller, Offender ID Technology Coordinator, at PCPA Headquarters at phone 717-236-1059 x 104 or email: [email protected] to apply for these programs or to request information on anything related to central booking.

You must be able to make payment to the The Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association by the end of January each year to be on the maintenance program.

PCPA is a non-profit organization and makes no profit from these programs.
