We get to see how Securus is connecting families on Christmas by using their video visitation technology on a video that it posted on YouTube about communication during Christmas. I believe that this is such an excellent opportunity for inmates to be able to communicate with their families through a video. Christmas is a period to come together as families and connect. This is technically impossible for inmates who are locked up in prison. Securus Technology comes in to assist. They arrange for video calls for prisoners with their families. Children are able to talk to their parents who are in prison during Christmas and get the feeling of togetherness. This takes away the loneliness of inmates who feel that they are far away from their family members. The best thing about this video visitation technology is that it is different from the usual phone calls. One can only hear the other person’s voice on a phone call. The inmates can physically see their family members and also show them the gifts that they prepared for them for Christmas through the video visitation. Securus company ensure that all prisoners get to spend time with their families at such special season of the year.
We see a young girl conversing with her father who is in prison on this YouTube video. It is obvious that the kid is jubilant to see her father. She shows him what she prepared for him for Christmas. The Father gets the opportunity to wish her a happy merry Christmas. Securus is making the impossible to be possible and bringing families together. It brings joy to them during the Christmas time. They believe that the inmates are important people in the society and they should also enjoy the privileges that ordinary people enjoy including having a Good Merry Christmas.
