Securus Video Visitation service is offered at correctional facilities across the United States and Canada, including Apache County Jail in Arizona, Butte County Jail in California and East Carroll Parish in Louisiana, as reported by Securus Technology. A more complete list of facilities that use the video visitation system can be found at the company's website.
A list of services offered at each facility that Securus contracts with are listed on the Securus website, notes Securus Technology. In addition to video visitation, it provides Advance Connect, Direct Bill, Inmate Debit and secure mail services. Advance Connect is a prepaid calling account that allows noninmates to accept collect calls from a corrections facility with the charges automatically deducted from a prepaid card.
Depending on the facility, video visitation entails either on site video visitation scheduling or at home visitation, explains Securus Technology. On site video visitation allows people to schedule in person visits ahead of the date. This may reduce the time spent waiting in line once at the facility. At home visitation enables people to remotely communicate with an incarcerated person using a webcam. The program tracks visiting availability through the system so that calls are scheduled according to facility parameters.
