Corrections officers working in jails that utilize the new video visitation systems have high praise for the technology which benefits both staff and inmates, but in different ways.
Benefits of Video Visitation
As recently reported, the Weber County Jail in Utah felt an immediate positive impact when it made the switch from contactvisitation to video visitation. Among the benefits described by corrections staff is a reduction of risk to guards and other personnel, a decrease in noise levels inside the jail, and a greater sense of calm among inmates.
