Securus Technologies has designed and engineered a wonderful tool for people to keep in touch with one another even when one of the individuals is placed in jail. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the different types of technologies that are available to them for keeping in touch. As today’s world of technologies progress, there are many opportunities for people to communicate with others in ways that have never necessarily ever been possible before.
Securus Technologies has made a program that utilizes a video conferencing interface to allow people to chat with one another even if one of the parties of the chat is incarcerated. There are select correctional facilities that are allowing the usage of the program, with many more set to do so in the near future. It is a wonderful program as it not only makes communicating through the means of chatting on an online video conferencing mode possible for inmates and their visitors, but can also be used as a tool for uncovering crimes that are occurring within the jails. Law enforcement officials have authority to monitor the video sessions to ensure that nothing illegal is being discussed and in the case any types of crimes that have occurred or may be occurring within the premises of the jail, which is a fairly common instance, over the video conferencing chat, an investigative process can be begun in which law enforcement officials have been able to gather the details that are necessary to do so. It is a great tool for uncovering what could be dangerous crimes and should not be taken for granted. Therefore, it is a program that is recommended for more correctional facilities to utilize within their systems. It also eliminates the needs of scheduling as many physical visitation sessions as have existed. It is changing the world of communications as we know it.
