Securus Technology makes it Easier for Inmates and Families to Stay Together

Over the past few years I have come to discover how Securus Technologies help inmates and their families. One of the hardest parts of doing time in prison is not being able to see family members on a regular basis. Many dads, moms, sons and daughters are incarcerated. When they are they usually have a hard time seeing the people that they care about. Securus has invented a new technology that has helped to change this problem.


The Video Visitation App is a great piece of technology that allows inmates to see their families on a consistent basis. This technology uses a video platform that allows an inmate to transmit a video image of themselves directly to a family member’s smartphone. An incarcerated mom can now communicate with her daughter with sight as well as sound.


A trusted person who is related to an inmate just has to download the app from Google Play or the iStore. Once they do they will then register their account and get permission to communicate with an inmate. After prison officials gives them permission they will then be able to talk with the inmate at scheduled visit times.


This is one of the best things about the Video Visitation App. It helps families to stay together without the extra expense or commitment of time. Another hindrance for incarcerated felons and their families has to do with travel time to institutions.


Many families do not have their own reliable transportation to get out to the institution. Sometimes they do not have enough money to consistently make the trip. The video visitation app just makes the whole visitation process easier for everyone.


I am glad that this type of technology is in place. Inmates can definitely use it to improve the quality of their lives and to keep their relationships together while they are in jail. You can find out more about Securus and this technology by visiting their website.
