Securus Technologies is a top provider of criminal and civil justice technology solutions for investigation, public safety, monitoring and correction. It has recently embarked on a campaign to promote video visitation benefits in various US-based correctional agencies. It is widely expected that video visitation service will be highlighted using a number of commercials running over the next 30 days to show their value.
Richard “Rick” Smith, the Chairman and CEO of Securus Technologies reckons that the company connects more than 160,000 visits monthly when visitors choose to use the video visitation services. It is possible to connect and visit an inmate on a mobile phone or desktop as opposed to the convention al method of physically making the visit. The company utilizes a secure technology to connect the souls that need to communicate easily especially in such tough conditions. Smith also added that the remote visitations enable people to make more visits without any common inconveniences of physically visiting a correctional facility. Smith added that people who are opposed to this idea do not understand the value it adds to the lives of the incarcerated persons.
Impact of Video Visitation
Securus Technologies’ video visitation offers an opportunity to inmates to connect with their families over the holiday seasons, thanksgiving and interact often with a loved one in jail. Video Visitation is just one of the instances where Securus is concerned with modernizing the incarceration experience.
