Securus Launches Video Visitation App

All of us who have ever had a loved one incarcerated in a jail or prison can attest to the many difficulties communicating with your loved ones can be. With the rigid schedules most institutions adhere to and logistical problems of trying to get to the institution for visits can be challenging. Beyond that, many times a phone call just doesn’t feel like its enough.
Sharing those special moments in life like children’s birthdays, holidays, anniversary or even sporting events can make your incarcerated loved ones feel more involved with their families lives and raise their spirits. Watch
With that in mind Securus Technologies recently launched their Securus Video Visitation App for Android and Apple devices. The app which launched for Android in February and according to PR Newswire has already been downloaded more 60,000 times. The Apple device version has been downloaded nearly 5000 times.

Russell Roberts, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy at Securus Technologies is quoted saying “Securus’ Video Visit mobile app represents another way we Serve and Connect, connecting family and friends with an easier, more convenient way to visit their incarcerated loved ones. Until recently, family and friends who wanted to connect with their loved ones had no choice in how they participated in phone calls or visits, so we made the investment necessary to bring more options to the visitation process. Our Securus Video Visit app brings the mobility consumers are familiar with to the rigidness of jails and prisons – making inmate phone calls and visitation more convenient for everyone involved.”
