Securus Technologies Has Changed Inmate Visitations Using Video Technology

It’s no secret. Good people that made one mistake are sitting in prisons all over the United States. There are several reasons why good people are sent to prison. The main reason is poor choices on the part of the person sent to jail, and the other reason is a judicial system that is completely broken. People will always make bad choices, but the justice system can be changed. Securus Technologies is doing their part to make a bad situation better by offering inmates and their families a telephone service that is far and away the best in the prison communication industry.

Securus is the top inmate call provider in the United States. Securus has been offering families unlimited minutes and no long distance charges system for years, and there’s no contract to sign. Securus provides a “local” number that is part of the number system near the prison where a loved one is incarcerated. Once the family has the number, they give it to the inmate, and the service is activated. The new number is now the family’s number. When an inmate calls that number, the family’s designated phone number will ring. That number can be a cell, work, or home phone number.

That system has helped reduced the cost of phone calls, and the “local” number system has eliminated some of the hassles of an inmate trying to make a call from the standard phone system that is in place in prisons across the country. But Securus Technologies has carried their inmate calling system a couple of steps further. Securus recently introduced the video visitation system. The video visitation system gives inmates the opportunity to interact with their family just like they would on a Facetime call. In other words, the video visitation system eliminates the need to go to the prison, and wait, to interact with an inmate through a thick glass window. A video visitation can be set up in advance, and it can include what Securus calls a concert call.

A concert call is a call where the inmate can watch live entertainment or interact with more than one person. And the video and concert system is easy to use. A video concert can be done with a computer, a web camera, and an Internet connection. The old method of waiting for love ones to visit on certain days and between certain hours has been eliminated thanks to the Securus video visitation and the video concert feature.
