Using Video Visitation to Help with Homework
Living in a prison or correctional facility is always thought to be a tough place to be. While it is meant to be a punishment to take away freedom, many people do not consider the other struggles that inmates may deal with other than losing out on their basic freedoms. One of the largest challenges that many inmates face is being able to talk to their kids on a regular basis.
While prison systems do allow for phone calls and onsite visitation, these visits often are hectic and stressful. Thanks to a new technology provided by Securus Technologies, an inmate can now connect with a family member in a more efficient and intimate manner. The newest product provided by Securus Technologies is a video visitation platform that allows an inmate to talk with a family member over a high-tech video system, which can be connected through any smartphone.
Thus far, the newest product provided by Securus Technologies has been used for a number of different ways. One way that some inmates are using it is to help their kids with their homework assignments. Inmates are able to receive homework assignments in advance and then spending time with their kids going through the daily lessons. This can help an inmate to feel more connected with their family members and also help to contribute towards a child’s long-term educational goals.
The most recent product developed by Securus Technologies is just the latest in a long line of innovating products and services that they have provided to the correctional facility industry. Securus Technologies is a Dallas based company that has provided a number of security and communications products that have helped to make facilities a safer place to live and more efficient.
