One of the most challenging aspects of being imprisoned is not being able to contact your friends and family members on a regular basis. This is particularly difficult during the holidays and other special times of the year. While prisoners have always had the ability to meet with friends and family members at the prison or have regular phone calls, neither option has been great for either the prisoner or a family member.
Thanks to new technology now provided by Securus Technologies, prisoners and inmates at corrections facilities across the country will now have the ability to communicate face-to-face with their loved ones in a much more convenient manner. Securus has unveiled a new holiday-focused video visitation service that will help to ensure that all inmates are able to speak with and see their loved ones around the holiday.
The new technology will use a wireless face-to-face video visitation platform. Each correctional facility will be able to establish terminals throughout the facility that can be used by the inmate. Any family member approved by the facility will then be able to download an application on a phone or tablet that will help to establish the visitation.
While this allows from more convenience for the inmate, it is also more convenient for a family member and the prisons. Prisons will no longer have to deal with such significant levels of visitors around the holidays as some family members will choose to spend more time at home instead of commuting to the prison and back. This will also help to increase security measures onsite, as there will be a reduced risk of illegal items being smuggled inside.
Seucurs has been one of the leaders in the communications industry for more than a decade. The company has specialized in providing products to correctional facilities and they now provide services to hundreds of locations across the country. These products have helped hundreds of thousands of inmates and family members stay connected in a safe environment.
