Securus has helped me with all the students I see on a daily basis because they are trying to have a simple connection with their parents. I know that this is very important because all these students are trying to get through the day knowing that they have relatives in jail. One of the most important things that I have done is sit these kids down with a laptop so that they can do their homework at the same time as they talk to someone who is trying to get through their prison sentence. The best thing that can happen to these families is that small amount of connection they get over some homework.
The homework that the kids do with their relatives can be a lot of fun, and they are going to enjoy the experience. The videos are very clear, and they are a lot of fun. I have sat back with some of the kids that I serve while they do this, and they really like the experience. I like knowing that they are having a good time, and I know that they have gotten something out what is a simple phone call.
The phone calls are all put through at the same time, and there are people on the other end sitting down at a video camera that was put in the prison by Securus. Securus makes every call very safe, and it helps these families have the privacy they need. I know that the Securus people have been upgrading how they do security, and I want to be sure that they have taken the time to keep these kids safe while they are trying to talk to family. I like seeing the kids have a good time on the calls, and they can still get their homework done.
