Spending Christmas away from your loved one can be a depressing, stressful time. This is especially true if your loved one is incarcerated. Getting to see them can be taxing and in some cases impossible. And they can never be there to watch the kids unwrap presents or to eat turkey dinner with grandma and grandpa. It’s times like this that Securus Technologies video visitation can make the season bright again.
In this short video we see some of the benefits of video visitation brought to life. The video is 100% unscripted. The inmate and his family graciously allowed Securus Technologies to record and present their real Christmas interactions. The video captures some of the magic that two way video communications can sprinkle over an extremely stressful situation during a potentially depressing time.
But the video doesn’t present the whole story either. This family was saved a lot of hassle by not having to go through the hardships of an in-facility visit. With an internet-mediated video visitation there’s no commute, no lines. You don’t have to pack the kids and grandparents in the car then potentially wait for hours. There’s no driving half a day only to be told the facility has been put on lock down, that you’ll just have to come back next month. And most importantly you can talk with your loved one whenever you want, so long as they have sufficient credits and the facility allows it.
Today many facilities are encouraging video visitations not just for the reasons listed above but also for the security of the prison itself. Securus Technologies as always, has been at the forefront vanguard of this shift. They’ve been bringing efficient solutions to bear on the challenging problems faced by prison inmates and staff alike for decades. Prisons are among the most high-tension, stressful environments found anywhere. But Securus Technologies believes that through research and innovation that stress can be minimized in a humane way, a way in which everyone wins.
