Securus Technologies has announced that it will take its popular Video Visitation service on an ad campaign across North America. For the remainder of the year, Securus plans on showcasing to the civilian population all of the benefits their services can afford them.
Richard A. Smith, Securus Technologies’s Chairman and CEO, has stated that the service his company provides offers the most progressive solution to in-person visits for those serving sentences. With more than 160,000 visits taking place per month on the Video Visitation platform, Smith wants to see that number grow by making more people aware of its existence.
Despite the influence Securus has as a tech provider to many of the correctional facilities across the US, Smith points out that each facility has its own rules on how visitation works. With its ability to connect those serving sentences and their families in the civilian population, the constraints imposed on those wanting to visit can be lifted. Convenience enters the equation in a way that makes life for the civilian easier while ensuring that inmates continue to have access to their families.
In an era where connectivity is a feature that many look for in nearly all electronic devices and where services like Skype is an essential application to have at the ready, Video Visitation offers a service that is both expected from many consumers while maintaining the ease of access they’re all used to. Smith has long argued that this is the most effective solution to keeping inmates in touch with family while also making sure that that respective prison populations and their surrounding communities aren’t constrained to limits that are perhaps not as easy to adhere to as maybe they once were.
