The Securus Technologies Video Visitation solution is now being used by about 180 correctional agencies in the United States at this point in time. Securus Technologies Video Visitation accomplishes about 160,000 individual inmate visits each month. This computes to about 2,000,000 visits annually.
According to Securus Technologies, the number of individual inmate visits accomplished through the company’s Video Visitation solution is doubling each year. The company anticipates that this trend will continue in the immediate future as more correctional institutions, and the public at large, learn more about the benefits of Securus Technologies Video Visitation.
The Securus Technologies Video Visitation app has been downloaded by friends and family members of incarcerated people over 232,000 times thus far. The company anticipates that this trend will also continue apace as an ever increasing number of loved ones of offenders learn about the benefits of virtual inmate visitation using this solution.
The Securus Technologies Video Visitation technology is also enjoying growth in its use because it is highly cost effective. Family members of an incarcerated person oftentimes have to expend what amounts to a significant amount of money to accomplish a visitation with an offender. In many cases, visitation with an incarcerated loved one requires travel to a facility at a distant location.
In addition, the Securus Technologies Visual Visitation technology reduces expenses to correctional departments. In this day and age, correctional departments on the federal, state, and local levels are all facing extremely tight budgets. When money can be saved on costs associated with inmate visitation, funds become more readily available to address safety and security issues, both for the sake of institutions, but also for the public at large.
Securus Technologies is based in Dallas Texas. The company currently provides services to over 3,450 public safety, law enforcement and correctional agencies in North America.
