Remote Video Visitation

Inmates now have the option to use a
new remote video visitation system to
speak with family, friends or professionals
via the internet. Remote video visitation
eliminates time and stress associated
with travel to and from the correctional
facility by reserving a visit on-line.

Reservations must be paid either by
credit card or prepaid money card.
Cost is $9.00 per 20 minute visit. 

Scheduling and paying for a video
visit using the internet is extremely
simple and user-friendly with e-mail
confirmations of visit times and charges.
