Continental Prison Systems Lands Additional Kiosks Contract in Colorado; Initial Response Up 200 Percent Over Expected Usage and Revenues

FRESNO, Calif., Oct. 6, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Continental Prison Systems, Inc. (Pink Sheets:CPSZ), a leader in Prison kiosk technology that streamlines the inmate release process and a growing provider of the cost-reducing process for loading funds onto an inmate's account over the internet or through a kiosk, announced today that the EZ kiosk division of Continental Prison Systems, Inc. has successfully completed and signed a further service agreement with an additional 485 bed Colorado prison facility.

Ron Hodge, President and CEO of Continental Prison Systems, Inc. stated, "The second Colorado facility has been successfully installed. Two booking room kiosks and two visiting room kiosks have been installed at this facility. These kiosks have experience significantly greater than expected volumes in the first two weeks. The money loaded onto the inmates' accounts and the bail/fines being paid by both cash and credit card has far exceeded all previous projections. We continue to work with the facility on a daily basis and we will soon bring on our proprietary 'remote' internet based money transfer service. These services include loading funds onto an inmate's trust account and also the ability to pay fines and bail through CPSZ's online site."

The EZ exit debit card will follow these services in early November. The facility has expressed the desire to be "100% cashless" by the end of this year. This account will be a tremendous springboard for CPSZ as we aggressively move forward in our negotiations with other facilities and with other strategic partners.
