Securus Technologies is based in Texas and is an industry leader in regard to technologies in civil and criminal justice systems. One of the important, expanding technologies created by and available from Securus Technologies is Video Visitation.
Video Visitation is means of ensuring that incarcerated people and their loved ones can maintain consistent contact during the terms of prison or jail sentences. Video Visitation is more than just come different derivation of a communication system like Skype.
The Securus Technologies Video Visitation system comes complete not only with a visitation portal, but also security protocols and registration features. This permits the appropriate coordination and security oversight of individual visitations between an inmate and a loved one.
Securus Technologies Video Visitation is an inexpensive way of permitting incarcerated individuals to enjoy visits with loved ones. Traditional in-person visitation costs about $100 per session. Visitation through this latest Securus Technologies technology costs $2.72 for each individual session.
Approximately 2 million individual visiting sessions will be held via the Securus Technologies Video Visitation system during the coming year. That equates to about 160,000 individual visits over the course of any given month.
Securus Technologies has announced that the use of the Video Visitation technology is doubling in volume each year. The company anticipates that usage next year will be at about 4 million visits.
The Securus Technologies Video Visitation system comes complete with a user friendly app that is readily available. The app itself has been downloaded about 232,000 times to date. The number of downloads is increasing at a steady rate each month as well.
As of now, 178 correctional agencies in the United States have implemented the Securus Technologies Video Visitation system. This represents another number in which the company anticipates significant increases in the coming year, and into the future as well.
