Securus Technologies Video Visitation is Helping Kids do Homework With Incarcerated Parents

Imagine the traditional method of connecting with your loved ones at the various prisons in the country. First, it takes some time to arrange such visits because the visitor and the prisoner must synchronize their meetings to abide by the limitless security procedures. Even if everything goes smoothly, it can take a lot of time to meet the prisoner. For most families, the entire process is riddled with difficulties requiring an entire day to meet prisoners. The long wait times and strict security procedures makes it impossible for most families to regularly visit their loves ones. Perhaps, taking a day off is another hurdle for someone who works more than 40 hours to sustain the family.

However, fortunes of families are changing. The introduction of advanced video streaming technology by Securus Technologies is revolutionizing the industry as it allows families and prisoners to meet regularly through video visitation.

Perhaps, it is the first time in history that prisoners and their children can interact with each other so easily.
