Those who have ever been imprisoned can agree with me that with no friends and family members around, jail can be a lonely place. Out of the approximately 2.2 million Americans languishing in jails, only a few get regular visits due to visitation barriers such as costs and distance. But with Securus Video Visitation technology, the situation is destined for change. The technology is similar to Skype and helps family members and friends of inmates communicate with their loved ones who have been incarcerated from the comfort of their homes. The remote video visitation system is increasingly becoming popular and has helped prevent prisons from breaking the existing relationships between people.
Securus Video Visitation eliminates the exposure of children to jail settings as this can cause them stress and trauma. Children can now connect with their incarcerated parents from their homes where they are comfortable and not intimidated. The video visitation technology will no doubt create stronger bonds between incarcerated parents and their children. All they need is a smartphone, laptop, tablet or PC connected to a reliable internet connection. With this latest technology, Securus are fulfilling their purpose of improving the incarceration experience something that can boost inmates’ morale and even lower recidivism rates. Most of the times, inmates are released from jail without adequate preparation on what to do after completing their jail terms. Securus Video Visitation offers them an opportunity to discuss their plans with their family and friends.
