Secures Visitation App is designed exclusively for inmates. This technology is implemented within many correctional facilities all throughout the country. The Visitation App allows inmates and their loved ones to keep in touch during their incarceration. The technology utilizes a terminal and a mobile phone to send and receive video images.

 

Securus came up with the Visitation App back in 2011. The app works by allowing an inmate to use a video terminal that is located within a prison facility. The terminal sends out video images to a person’s smartphone that has the app installed. This technology was created by Securus to help families to stay together through an inmate’s time behind bars.

Once a loved one downloads this app, they can then use it to keep in touch with a jailed family member. An individual can simply make a call instead of traveling out to a facility. This is a great alternative for family and visitations because it helps poorer families who are dealing with transportation issues to stay in touch with inmates. I know this is a really good idea.

 

The app’s developers at Securus also wants to reduce the recidivism rate for inmates.

 

Inmates that have consistent access to their families will usually conduct themselves in a good manner while behind bars. I can’t deny that this is an excellent idea. Also, they will less likely to return back to prison once they are out.

 

Securus Visitation App is available at Google Play and iStore. You can download the app for free and once they are approved they can then contact the facility where a loved one is being held. Video visitation technology is changing the way that inmates and their families stay connected while they are serving out their time.
