Securus Technologies helps inmates and their families with Video Visitation Technology

Securus Technologies recently released a downloadable video application in January 2016. The software comes in the form of a mobile app that can be downloadable on any smart device. Anyone using Android, iPad, iPhone, tablets, Apple smartphones or computers can access the program. Friends and families have especially benefited from the video visitation program. The app is first downloaded from App Store or Google Play for free. Securus Technologies has been a communication and technology leader. It is a company that avails technology services and products to public safety and correction industries. The firm is spread to all states in the United States and thousands of correction facilities.


The main advantage of the video visitation program is that inmates can experience the daily family life. A father that is imprisoned can get to watch the lives of their children or spouses on a regular basis. The video visitation program is flexible to anyone that would like to use the system. It doesn’t put any limits such as children by not allowing their visits. Inmates can stay connected with their family members and build their relationships consistently.


While traditional visits had a few days to make the video visitation, the current video visitation program is possible on a daily basis. One can schedule a video visitation any time from morning to evening. The visitation program has increased the time and flexibility with which the program functions. Everyone in the correction facility can have enough time to talk with their loved ones. The visitation center has also reduced tension within correction facilities. In most times, correction facilities usually have long queues of people waiting to speak to their loved ones. The availability of the program eliminates congestion in correction facilities. It has removed the risk of violence in prisons caused by large crowds.


Richard A. Smith is the CEO of Securus Technologies. In a recent interview, he stated that the company has a vision to serve, connect, and to make the world a better place. The revolution with the video visitation program is achieving exactly that. It has increased chances of inmates to speak with their loved ones and advanced their rehabilitation steps. He added that it had reduced inmate movement leading to a greater degree of safety. Securus Technologies avails its services to more than 3,400 correction facilities in North America. The company provides other services such as incident management, public information, biometric analysis and investigation. The nature of service offered by the firm is there to make the world a safer place.
