Christmas Time Can Now Include An Imprisoned Family Member Because Of Securus

If there was any time that my family members and I felt lonely without a particular person is when it was Christmas time. My whole family comes together for Christmas every year, and the one person I was always missing was the family member who was in jail. If I had the opportunity to have video visitations with that family member, I would’ve taken that opportunity because it would help me to see my imprisoned family member more often. Seeing my family member in jail was only the result of driving hours and standing in long lines to be searched and then allowed into the prison.

If I’m to use Securus technology to talk to my family member in jail, I wouldn’t have to drive anywhere, and I could have a meaningful conversation without being rushed by the guard telling him that his time is almost up! I was never able to touch my family member anyways when I went to see him in prison, so not being able to touch them while using video visitation wouldn’t be any different but would still be more personal to me. I’m taken aback that such technology exists for prison inmates to talk to family members, and I have to give congratulations to Securus for this technology.

Video chatting is so popular these days that everyone is doing it, including myself. Although I never knew that video chatting was available for inmates to talk to those in the outside world, I’m thrilled to learn that Securus has brought this technology to those who are having a hard time seeing their family members while they are locked up. The bad part is that some family members may not see their imprisoned loved one for years, especially when they can’t get to the prison, so I think this technology is more than warranted.

The same way I can go to a prison and stand in line to see my family member, I can choose to make an appointment with Securus to talk to that family member via video chat instead. Why should I wait in those long lines that seem to never end when I get to the prison? Talking to a family member in jail on video is so cool, especially if it’s Christmas time, and I want to include them in the festivities around my home. Securus has really outdone themselves with this great technology.
