Prisoner visitation rights are an important concern for the incarcerated and their families, but it hosts a whole set of logistical and security issues. With video visitation systems, the prisoners are able to keep live visitation by video without hosting an in person visit.
With an inmate video visitation system, your prison or jail facility can provide a higher level of security without denying prisoner visitation rights. This technology allows for live, real time video conversations between the inmate and their family. It lowers the man power and procedural concerns with admitting visitors into your facility, yet it still maintains critical oversight capabilities. Contraband is a lesser issue when the visitation occurs virtually over secure connections.
For those that are tasked with oversight of the security issues from prisoner visitation rights, they will be pleased to learn that they retain complete control over the process. The administration controls allow one to record, listen and screen any interactions between inmates and their video visitors. Alternatively, in terms of secure meetings with lawyers, marshalls and other secure visitors, the settings can be changed to provide the proper privacy settings.
Also, from a purely organizational perspective, the visitors can schedule and coordinate their own meetings. Just from putting the scheduling in someone elses hands, you can eliminate man hours from the process. The case prep and time dedicated to visiting facilities is drastically reduced for lawyers and other judicial workers that must maintain contact with inmates. In terms of the privileged visits, the administration controls will indicate that the visit has taken place, although video and audio will not be recorded or available. This oversight removes the facility from the process where it makes sense to do so.
Finally, the prisoner visitation rights are maintained even when there are complaints from visitors about travel time and security protocols. With a secure video visitation system, they are no longer subjected to delays and commutes for visits.
