HOW WE STARTED
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.
Ownership and Staff
CrossBar’s Executives 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 an additional layer of security 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 have a proprietary timing function that limits the max inhalation time to 2.5 seconds. 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.
COMMITTED TO THE FUTURE
Research and Development
CrossBar makes every effort to be 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 currently in the process of submitting a pre-market tobacco application to the FDA. This includes laboratory tests (aerosol, toxicology, stability, ambient air) as well as behavioral health studies. CrossBar is committed to quality and recently received a UL 8139 Certification on the battery. This certification is unique to CrossBar and the battery used in our product.
