Securus Video Visitation App is a Real Gift for Inmates

Christmas is one of America’s favorite holiday’s. People everywhere enjoy this celebration and incarcerated felons are no exception. It is a known fact that many families suffer when a mom or dad is in jail. Having a jailed parent during Christmas time is frustrating for many children. Securus knows this and has created video visitation technology to help alleviate this problem.

I recently watched a video about an inmate using Securus’s video visitation app to interact with his son during Christmas. The young boy was speaking with and watching his dad on his mobile device while he opened his gifts. The incarcerated father was with his son as he left the room and went downstairs to open up Christmas gifts. While the father was not in the home with the child; this technology made it possible for him to be there indirectly.

You see, the Video Visitation App by Securus can easily be downloaded onto a mobile device. Once it is, a person can contact a prison facility to schedule visitation times with an incarcerated family member. If the prison facility approves; then a family and their jailed inmate can then communicate each other.

One of the best things about the video visitation app is that it allows inmates to see their children, parents, wives, significant others, aunts, uncles and siblings. Believe it or not, when inmates have access to family on a regular basis; it helps them to adjust to prison life and do better. It also reduces their chances of coming back to prison.

Securus has been around since the late 80s. They have been providing communication solutions for public safety, correctional facilities and the law enforcement communities all over the country. They not only have video visitation applications; they also set up secure communication systems and implement high security technology for law enforcement and correctional facility personnel.

When I discovered Securus it completely blew my mind. I mean, I have incarcerated family members and being able to see them on my mobile device while we talk is almost as good as having them in the same place with me.

I know that Securus is a great piece of technology and I know it will make a difference in the lives of many people. If you want to find out more about Securus and how its technology is helping to change lives; then check out the company’s website at
