Video visitation is the newest technology related to the inmate visitation system. Inmate video visitation is economically smart and is safer than in person inmate visitation.
Virtual visitation removes the jail or prison from the visitation equation. Removing the incarceration facility from the visitation equation eliminates the expense and time involved in traveling to the facility. Prison video visitation allows friends and families to visit with inmates, from the comfort and security of their own homes.
A video visitation system allows ease to authorized personnel in conducting, interacting, monitoring and terminating any virtual visit. Video visitation reduces the manpower necessary when conducting prison visits by reducing the movement of inmates in the jail or prison. With a video visitation system, the responsibility of scheduling and administering a video visit is put on family and friends wishing to visit with the inmate.
Jail video visitation allows for more frequent visits and leads to a stronger support system for inmates. Prison visitation rights are often restrictive and allow for two visits per week, only on Saturdays or Sundays.
A virtual visitation system allows lawyers and other professionals to perform their jobs without the hassle or danger of visiting an actual jail or prison.
Video visitation is an advantageous development in visitation technology.
