Rekindle Friendships During the Holidays with Securus

January 12, 2017 by Posted in: Prison Communication

Securus is the organization that has managed to bring inmates on the inside with their families on the outside. I am certain that this organization will have one of the most popular software apps for people to use during the holidays. I have seen how this company has managed to grow. I know that there is quite a bit of talk about the communications software, and I believe that more people will discover it during Christmas.

 

When you are out during the holidays you may have more time to experiment with new software. That is actually how I discovered Securus last year. I was going through some of my old contacts. I started discovering friends that I have not been in contact with in years. I found that some of these friends had been incarcerated. I was wondering how I could get in contact with some of them since I did not live in some of the same states. I started calling around to their family members. I had never called a prison before so I really didn’t know what type of technology was out there. It wasn’t until I talked to a brother of someone that was locked up on the inside that I discovered something called video visitation from Securus.

 

I thought that this was incredible. At first I didn’t think that I was going to be able to contact some of my friends that were locked away, but I started reading more on Securus. I learned that this was the type of company that was going to help me rekindle friendships that had died. I signed up for a Securus account after I downloaded the app. I was figured that I was going to schedule multiple visits with different friends during the Christmas holiday. I tried a couple of video visits before Christmas just so that I would be familiar with how the whole process worked. These were like test runs. I have to say that I was worried for nothing. It was so easy to use the program. The video was clear. The audio was also clear. It was the next best thing to being there. I would recommend this for all of those people with incarcerated family members. Securus has become one of the apps that I appreciate most. It is one of the hottest programs on my phone for the holidays.
