Securus Technologies is a private institution that provides criminal and civil justice technology solutions to correctional, public safety and monitoring facilities in the United States. Just recently the organization announced that it was planning to introduce a new campaign that would promote the benefits of the new remote video visitation in the correctional agencies in the United States.


According to a recent report from the institution, during the next thirty days, the organization will be promoting the video visitation service through several commercials that will demonstrate the real value of the application. According to Richard Smith, the chief executive officer of the organization, his company connects more than one hundred and sixty thousand visits every month. The families and friends of the inmates choose to connect and also visit their loved ones using their mobile phones and desktops. This method is better compared to the traditional and outdated method of driving all the way to the correctional facilities and waiting in the long queues just to see their loved ones.

Richard Smith says that the commercials will highlight the benefits of using the remote video visitation platform over the traditional method. The ads will also show the technology and safety of the method that has not been provided by other companies in the market. Consumers and members of the society will see how the video visitation platform connects fathers, mothers, sons and daughters at an affordable rate. Even when parents are incarcerated, their children will be happy to meet with them regularly. The parents will also have an opportunity to see how their children are growing as they are away from home. The company understands the importance of a reliable communication platform between the inmates and their families, and that is why they are working hard to make it successful. During the holiday season, inmates will have a time of their lives thanks to the application.
