In a recent move, correctional facilities in Northern America have introduced the use of Telmate devices for inmate communication. Telmate’s video conferencing system allows friends, family members, and inmate attorneys keep in touch with prisoners from anywhere in the world via Telmate web accounts, software, and internet link. Telmate stations are installed in a facility’s jail lobby with video and phone chatting capabilities. Besides that, inmates can have Telmate units in their living quarters.
Typically, visits are scheduled in blocks of 30 minutes daily except during mealtimes and at night. Jail officials have lauded this as a positive development in curbing the introduction of contraband into these institutions. In addition to that, Telmate’s video conferencing systems have enhanced the quality of inmate and visitor communication. As such, Telmate’s inmate visitation system is a tremendous breakthrough as it allows families and friends virtual visits as long as they have a PC or internet connection.
Despite concerns regarding the safety of visitor-inmate communications, the company encrypts all data generated in the process. For this reason, Telmate is working closely with prison authorities, families, and attorneys to ensure that lawyer-inmate rights are not violated.
Telmate is one of North America’s leading providers of inmate communication technology. As such, the company endeavours to develop innovative technologies that offer secure connectivity solutions between inmates, friends, families, and attorneys. With this in mind, Telmate’s technology processes millions of data requests daily. These requests comprise of video visits, phone calls, messages, and fund deposits. In addition to that, the company provides inmates with secure tablets allowing inmates access to legal resources, educational content, messaging services, and entertainment.
As part of the company’s community outreach efforts, Telmate is a committed supporter of law enforcement activities in North America. In this pursuit, Telmate has established various community outreach programs. These programs include Telmate Heroes, Telmate Cares, and Telmate Fallen Heroes through which it recognises the efforts of fallen and active officers. It’s key tech innovations originate from its facilities in San Francisco, California with a call centre in Ontario Canada. As of this year, the company serves approximately 200 correctional facilities in 30 states as well as other correctional facilities in Canada.
