GARDEN CITY, Kansas (AP) – Family and friends who want to visit loved ones in the Finney County jail just have to log on to their computers.
The jail in Garden City is using a new system that allows people to contact inmates from anywhere with a suitable computer and Internet connection.
The new program means inmates can be visited from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. The cost of a general visit is 50 cents per minute with a maximum allowed visit time of 20 minutes.
Previously, inmate visits were possible only over a video system in the jail lobby and only from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Friday.
