That is to say that, specifically, there are times in which families will have to endure the hardship of a loved one being incarcerated for one reason or another. During the incarceration period of a family member or friend, time does not stop by any means and shows absolutely no mercy to those affected by such a tragedy; however, Securus Technologies has implemented a way beyond traditional inmate visitation for families and friends to remain in contact with their loved ones who are in jail.
Securus Technologies offers the unprecedented options of live video visitation and “jail voicemail” to friends and family of inmates. This is invaluable to inmates who have children and/or wives and the families thereof, because there are times when physical visitation at a jail is simply impractical or altogether impossible. These families who are unable to visit their loved ones are now able to not only hear the voices of the people they care most about, but also to see their faces and surroundings outside of jail. In many ways, Securus Technologies has developed possibilities only before tangible in the dreams of homesick inmates.
A demonstration video depicts an inmate utilizing Securus’s video visitation service to see his family at home in their living room singing “Happy Birthday“. The fact that the inmate is able to participate in the occasion feels momentous simply in viewing. The inmate proceeds to vocalize that he is utterly “overwhelmed” by being able to see and hear his family even though he is in jail.
The possibilities stemming from the work of Securus Technologies are endless; however, it is logical to believe that the ability to participate in occasions such as this over video visitation with family, friends and other loved ones will serve to invigorate inmates with the feelings of love and happiness, thus promoting good behavior and overall functionality as a result of the profound incentive of being physically present with those same loved ones sooner than later.
Services offered by Securus Technologies have changed and will continue to forever change the stigma and overall reception of incarceration and the visitation and communication associated with it. Inmates will never feel as separated and distant from those they love and cherish while in jail or prison as long as Securus Technologies is present to care for their emotional and mental health by offering what has for so long been denied to them.
