Virtual Courts and JusticeVirtual Visitations for Correctional Facilities
Ensuring the safety, security, and health of prison staff, inmates, and their families is a critical function of correctional facilities. Virtual visits for inmates via video conferencing are an excellent way to reduce security risks while aiding in rehabilitation, mitigating exposure to illness, and providing better access to proper medical attention. Vidyo’s virtual visitation helps reduce prison costs while delivering supportive links to the community for a more successful re-entry into society.
Virtual Visits for Inmates
Inmates can visit by live video using virtual technology on an institutional computer. This allows inmates to develop and maintain family and community ties when in-person visits are not possible. Virtual visitation does not replace in-person visits but it gives visitors another way to communicate with an inmate. Here are some benefits of virtual inmate visit.
Reduce Recidivism Rates
Creating bridges to community support and overcoming visitor barriers promotes productive re-entry and improves outcomes.
Encourage Safety and Security
Virtual inmate visits have been shown to improve behavior, fewer rule infractions, and increase treatment participation.
Maximize Facilities Budget & Staffing
Fewer labor hours are required to monitor in-person visits, contraband searches, and on-site visitor searches and processing.
Improve Healthcare Delivery
Telemedicine increases inmates’ access to doctors while making it more affordable for prisons to provide care.
