The Future of Inmate Visitation

A family member going to prison often means long trips to a remote location for just a glimpse of their loved ones. Before phone calls were the only form of contact with an inmate, Securus Technologies is changing that. The launch of the Securus Video Visitation app has been downloaded over 60,000 times on the Google Play store. The app lets people visit their loved ones anywhere. It lets users sync their calendars and visit details to help ensure the best video visit possible. 

The app lets inmates visit their entire family during the holidays, birthdays, or anytime a long trip to a prison isn’t logistically possible. The app is also available on the Apple App store which allows for anyone with any device to access their loved one. The app provides testing for wifi and cellular connections to make sure that video quality is optimal during the inmate communication. This mobility allows family members to live their lives without fear of missing a video call. This makes it easier than ever to stay in touch with loved ones.
