Prisoners are often given a lot of incentives for not going back to jail. As a matter of fact one of the best ways to keep prisoners from going back to jail is by strengthening their family connections. Securus is doing their part in this process.
A few years ago Securus released its Video Visitation App which is designed to keep inmates and their families in touch. This app allows family members to contact their incarcerated loved ones without having to take trips to the jail during scheduled visits. The visits are conducted through a video platform where inmates and their family members can speak face to face.
This process is the next best thing to being with a person. It really does help inmates and their children to keep in touch. A child who has an incarcerated mom or dad can see them for special events or contact their parents at scheduled visitation times.
Securus knew that this particular technology would play a crucial role with helping inmates and their children to stay together as a family. There is no guarantee that the Video Visitation technology will not keep a prisoner from returning back to jail.
However, this technology can help to remind inmates that they have lives outside of prison. If they are smart they will take advantage of this technology and allow it to help them form permanent bonds that will keep them out of prison forever.
Securus has even released a video that shows off a prisoner watching his son perform with his band.
In my book, Securus Video Visitation App is a real winner. Securus.net has more information about Securus’s Video Visitation App.
