Law enforcement pursues video visits for inmates in Ill.

Authorities say the arrangement would save staff time as inmates would not have to be taken to visitation areas

By Mick Zawislak
Chicago Daily Herald

The number of visits allowed inmates at the Lake County jail would increase but face-to-face time eventually could be all but eliminated under a new system being pursued by law enforcement authorities.

With the contract for inmate telephone service expiring, authorities who reviewed several proposals are recommending a new pact with an Oregon company that would upgrade the service to provide video visitation.

The contract with Telmate of Ontario, Ore., calls for video conferencing equipment to be installed in each of the 17 inmate housing units, known as pods. Visitors would use equipment elsewhere in the building to connect and eventually would be able to do so remotely.
