I am actually the member of the family who has to check in with my dad because no one else will do it, and I am very thankful that Securus has put in new cameras in places where people make calls to the jails. They have these incredible installers who are working on very special installations that make every new video call clearer, and I know that they have done this to help people just like me. I have to be able to see my dad when I call into him, and I know that I am much better off if I have chosen to use Securus to make the call.

A lot of people might not feel like they are in a bad position when they are trying to call a jail, but the simple fact is that they can call a jail any time with Securus. I place these calls all the time, and they are very clear pictures that I can use to explain to everyone in the family how my dad is doing. Calling someone on the phone is not as powerful as just seeing them on video, and that is why I am happy to be using Securus.
They have made my calls to my dad possible, but they have also made calls for other families. It is very simple for anyone to get a call placed with Securus, and they will see their loved one instead of just hearing them. The whole process is far simpler for me, and I hope I can get the family around the camera soon.
