The recidivism rate remains a serious problem in the United States. Individuals released from a prison or jail term ultimately reoffend, oftentimes even committing more serious crimes than those that resulted in their incarceration in the first instance.
Securus Technologies is a company on the leading edge of developing solutions designed to reduce crime and keep communities safer. Anywhere Visit is one of the Securus Technologies solutions that provides a variety of benefits, including aiding in lowering offender recidivism rates.
Research reveals that incarcerated individuals who are able to maintain meaningful connections with loved ones on the outside have a lower recidivism rate than those inmates who do not have this type of association. Inmate visitation is key way in which incarcerated people and loved ones are able to maintain meaningful, consistent contact during a jail or prison term.
The reality is that visitation can be a challenging endeavor in many cases. For example, an offender may be incarcerated at an institution that is at a considerable distances from his or her family. This makes visitation difficult, if not impossible.
Through Securus Technologies Anywhere Visit, inmates and loved ones can enjoy regular visitation, no matter where family or friends are located. In addition, through the use of this application, loved ones and incarcerated individuals can enjoy visitation far more frequently.
In addition to making inmate visitation more accessible, Securus Technologies Anywhere Visits are also highly cost effective. The traditional in-person visitation costs a correctional institution an average of $100 per individual session. In addition, family members and friends have to expend what can amount to a considerable amount of money traveling to visit an incarcerated loved one.
