This will assist investigators track leads and also reduce violence in the prison walls. It gets even better for the visitors who are able to quickly access inmates without having to go through tedious processes of long service lines, and tight schedules.
Securus Technology does not require initiating the manual process of connecting video visits. The upfront security process is already inbuilt in the system. The system has helped and lessened the bottle-neck security searches that visitors would be subjected to.
