Incarceration not only affects those in prisons but their loved ones as well. It is even worse when an inmate has a child who they won’t see for a long time. Imagine an individual who has been imprisoned when his or her son or daughter is just a few months old. Such a child does not have the option of seeing the parent the traditional way. Securus Technologies Inc has, however, provided a solution to this predicament with their video visitation services. With the technology, inmates can easily communicate with their children and see them as well. I think that the influence of a parent plays a strong role as a child grows up, but some circumstances may not allow it. Video visitation is one effective way that a parent can stay connected to his or her child.
Be Part of the Special Moments
Another plus point of video visitation is that inmates can enjoy all the special moments in their children’s lives. It can be as small as watching cartoons with your daughter or a milestone such as a graduation celebration. Securus is making it possible to be a part of all of it. Another merit I think that relatives of inmates appreciate is scheduling visitation without even having to leave the house. An individual who has to take care of little kids may not always find time to make physical visits to their loved one in prison. Through video visitation, such an individual can save time and energy, and not have to worry about babysitter cancelling at the last minute.
Offering Technical Solutions
Securus Technologies provides a plethora of technologic solutions for the criminal and civil justice system in the U.S. The company offers high-tech software products that cater to needs such as communication, information management, emergency response, biometric analysis, inmate self-service, and parolee tracking. In the 30 years Securus had been in business, it has worked on improving the technical services available in the prison industry and so far, has done a good job of it. Besides video visitation, there is the instant mail, lobby kiosk, telephone, and voicemail services that have contributed to modern jail communication.
The Dallas-based company is currently providing services to over 1.2 million inmates. Securus has invested heavily in research and development with over 140 patents to its name. Securus also provides inmates with in-sourced customer service and has a technical team on standby to provide support. Communication is paramount, and Securus is making sure that incarceration does not put an end to it.
