Rehabilitative institutions, correctional facilities, prisons – they all have one thing in common today: they’re all over-crowded. A lot of things contribute to this situation. One is recidivism. There is exceptional recidivism in contemporary America, and that’s because a lot of rehabilitative measures to nothing to quell that which compels a criminal into criminal activity. It’s been found that a big factor is education, so solutions which facilitate education are definitely sought today. Beyond recidivism, things like refugees, political upheaval, drug use, and increasing legislative measures are crowding prisons so much that they seldom have the chance to upgrade technologically. Functionality must remain constant; ergo upgrades come at much extended intervals. Some institutions have been stuck in the 20th century. They’ve been filing paperwork by hand for the last sixteen years; and that simply must stop.
ConnectUs by Securus Technologies is an automated form program that allows all paperwork to be done without the need for any actual paper, or any supplies related to paper. Medical forms, complaint and grievance forms, signup sheets, and anything necessary can be programmed into the system for inmates to use. Inmates can also monitor the progress of their requests from the system without having to constantly irritate correctional facility staff. Additionally, applications of the educational variety are available, as are features and support in an unparalleled way that has never been available to inmates before. Furthermore, correctional facility staff have full control over the information prisoners can use, so nothing untoward gets through. All in all, ConnectUs by Securus Technologies offers a real solution to infrastructural redundancies that could potentially cut tens of thousands from the budget of even small correctional facilities. It’s no wonder that with such savings, and the reduced recidivism which could potentially come from reapportioned budgets, ConnectUs is currently in hot demand.
