In late 2012, the elected Laurel County, Kentucky Jailer, Jamie Mosley, not only designed an amazing product for his own jail – the CrossBar Electronic Cigarette – he created an industry. What started as an attempt to generate more revenue, reduce contraband, and improve inmate morale among his inmate population, now represents one of the fastest growing products the corrections industry has seen in years. The CrossBar brand is recognized in jails nationwide as the leader, with increasing numbers of U.S. correctional facilities utilizing our product.
CrossBar’s ownership and staff are all current or retired law enforcement and correctional professionals, so when you do business with us, you can feel confident that you are doing business with one of your own. Since the inception, CrossBar has continued to invest in research and development. We have sealed ends on our units and added an additional layer of security on the battery end with tamper obvious tape on both ends. Each unit has it’s own serial number in the form of a scannable barcode, located on the battery for tracking purposes. We are not a vapor shop or a telephone company selling one of many products. We manufacture and sell our own product that was developed specifically for use in corrections.
CrossBar is fully compliant with mandates set forth by the FDA relative to the regulation of ENDS (Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems) or E-Cigarettes. We have both our establishment and all of our products registered with FDA as required. We are conducting behavioral tests, as well as in-depth product testing, to ensure we deliver the best product possible to our customers. We are currently in the process of submitting a pre-market tobacco application to the FDA.

improve inmate morale
According to most detention facility administrators, a majority of inmates in a correctional facility arrives with an addiction to nicotine. An abrupt disappearance of that nicotine can trigger multiple behavioral issues. Facilities who utilize our products seem to experience a reduction in conflicts between the inmate population.
CrossBar products can help generate revenue and increase profit margins necessary to help support your correctional facility in its efforts to continue the operation of various inmate programs. "The increased revenue generated through the sale of Crossbar Electronic Cigarettes has afforded us the opportunity to provide more services to our inmate population." -Sheriff Ken Stolle Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office Virginia Beach, VA
According to our customers, the most frequent piece of contraband introduced into correctional facilities above cell phones, weapons, marijuana or even other drugs is.....tobacco. The use of CrossBar products eliminates the need for inmates to sneak in tobacco by providing an alternative nicotine delivery system.
compliance with federal regulations
CrossBar maintains and adheres to a compliance program for its electronic cigarettes as required by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, as amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (21 USC 387 et. seq). We make every effort to ensure our compliance obligations are met. We have obtained an establishment registration number, as well as product registration numbers for all of our products.
