My grandma is a very sweet lady who has been able to check in with different members of the family over the years using Securus, and I taught her how to use the Securus system so that she could talk to my dad who is her son. She wants to know that he is alright while he is in jail, and I showed her the best way to do this so that there would be no problems. She is a very nice person, but there was no way that would be able to learn to do this on her own.
Securus has a lot of video cameras in the jails around, and they have had them professionally installed to make sure they work well. I have heard how well this works to the point that I think I am in the room with him. My grandma has been very happy about that because it gives her a personal experience that she cannot get. She cannot go out to the jail, but Securus is bringing it to her. She has the app on her phone now, and she can set up calls with my dad at any time.
I am doing the same thing, but I do it with a tablet. The difference here is that I am able to use it on multiple platforms and keep checking in with my dad as I travel. I have been to a lot of places in this country where I have shown my dad around using Securus, and he will be out in a few years so maybe we can do these travels together. I like that he is able to talk to my grandma, and I hope that they can maintain their relationship over Securus so that they will always be in contact.
