교도소 방문을 화상 통화로 대체

시간 : 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.

직접 방문은 직원에게 부담이되었으며, 마약 사용으로 인해 교도소 인구가 크게 증가했습니다. 관리들은 또한 밀수품이 감옥에 밀수되는 것에 대해 우려했다.

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.
