Sometimes being the leader in something is not always a good thing. As is the case with the United States being the world’s leader in incarceration. There are over 2.2 million people in our nation’s prisons and jails. Over the last 40 years, this is a staggering increase of 500%.
This dramatic rise in people staying in jails has put added pressure on jail staff to keep their facilities running smoothly by increasing their security measures. Many facilities, particularly many county jails, are turning toward video visitation to increase security. This allows for less transporting of the inmates from their cell to visitation areas and eliminates visitors bringing in contraband.
By providing this video visitation solution and hardware, inmates can speak to their loved ones more often without risking the security of the facility. For the family and friends who would normally visit in person, they no longer need to make the long drive there. Furthermore, many visitors when arriving at the facility, tend to worry about the risks of being there and typically do not stay for long periods of time. Many visitors choose not to bring children to in-person visits because of the risks so the inmates can never see their children. This all changes with video visitation.
Our all-in-one approach includes everything from our one-of-a-kind video visitation, to educational software and form processing, even traditional voice calls and text messages— all initiated by inmates via wall mounted kiosks or handheld tablets.
By choosing to provide a video visitation solution in your facility, you’ll increase security, gain additional revenue, and provide families and friends more opportunities to chat with their loved ones.
