السجون تستبدل الزيارات بمكالمات الفيديو

الوقت: 2019-10-16

In recent years, more and more jails have introduced video-calling services. Theoretically, these products could make it easier for inmates to maintain their relationships with family and friends outside. But many jails have moved in the opposite direction, using the advent of these "video visitation" services as an excuse to restrict or eliminate traditional in-person visits.

كانت الزيارات الشخصية تشكل ضغطًا على الموظفين ، فقد ازداد عدد السجناء بسبب تعاطي المخدرات. كان المسؤولون قلقين أيضًا من تهريب المواد المهربة إلى السجن.

Mainstream video-calling services like Skype and FaceTime are free, of course, but they're rarely available to inmates. One reason that the video-calling services in jails cost money is that the companies providing the software also typically provide hardware, which are generally locked-down touchscreen kiosks. By contracting these services out, jails avoid the costs of acquiring, installing, and maintaining the hardware themselves.
