The kiosks have a three-paneled screen that can be programmed offsite to show text, photos and even video. In the case of an amber or silver alert — cases involving a missing and endangered child or adult with dementia — the screen will automatically post the person’s image and information on the top two-thirds of the display.


The machines cost roughly $3,000-$5,000 each, but Aloy said taxpayers aren’t footing the bill.

“The dollars come from crime-prevention funds, things like fines from the courthouse,” he said.
