Peter Wagner and Bernadette Rabuy of PR Newswire reported on March 14, 2016 that our American justice system contains over 2.3 million people. They are spread throughout 1,719 state prisons and 102 federal facilities. The US has over 900 juvenile detention centers and more than 3,200 local jails. Prison Policy
Some of these incarcerated people are waiting to make bail, others don’t have the money to make bail and await their trial behind bars. What do you do if a friend or loved one has been placed in one of these facilities? How do you stay in contact? Until recently, your only option was to schedule a visit according to their schedule, drive to the facility and wait in long lines. Finally, there is a solution. Securus Technologies has developed an at-home visitation program that eases your burden and provides the opportunity to visit one-on-one with your loved one from the comfort of your own home.
The innovative visitation program created by Securus allows you to pre-schedule an onsite visit, saving you waiting time, or visit from the comfort of your home on your computer. You will need a microphone and video capabilities. Simply create a Securus online account at Securustech.net and follow the instructions. After providing your personal information and creating a PIN, you will select the facility where the inmate is located. Communication will be made with the facility and after a few more simple steps, you will be ready to schedule your virtual visit.
Securus has gone one step further in developing convenient communication with inmates. Now, you may use your smartphone or tablet and visit from anywhere on your Android or Apple device. Simply download the Securus Video Visit app on Google Play or App Store. This free mobile app is a convenient way to visit with your loved one from any location. Stay in touch on holidays, birthdays, anniversaries or on any special occasion. Anywhere you have access to Wi-Fi or cell service, you can log onto your Securus Online account with your email and password. Be sure to test your connection to ensure a quality video visit.
