Securus Technologies recently announced its decision to launch a campaign for remote video visitation in US correctional facilities. The criminal and civil justice tech solutions provider launched the service in 2014. Many people have taken to remote video visitation due to its numerous benefits.
Benefits of remote video visitation
Securus connects well over 2000000 remote video visitations per year. Mr. Richard A. Smith, the CEO of Securus Technologies, is very excited about the concept of connecting inmates to their loved ones when it would have otherwise been impossible. Birthdays and anniversaries no longer have to be missed, fathers can now help their children with homework and inmates can now celebrate Christmas and Thanksgiving with their loved ones.
Remote video visitation is gaining popularity as people can now visit their loved ones more often without having to spend so much time and money driving all the way to the correctional facilities. Inmates in almost 200 US agencies have access to the service. It is very affordable; on average, it costs $2.72 per visit. Consumers get to save more than $100 per visit when they use remote video visitation. The app has been downloaded more than 200000 times since it was launched. Many people are embracing this service as it has made things much better for inmates and their loved ones.
Securus’ remote video visitation service is just one of the many ways in which the company strives to improve conditions for inmates and their loved ones; and the company’s efforts do not go unrecognized. In May 2016, it received an A+ rating accreditation from the Better Business Bureau for its excellent services and its continuous efforts to make conditions in correctional facilities safer for inmates and wardens and to make the community as a whole a safer and better place for everyone.
