Inmates at Oklahoma prisons begin receiving computer tablets

Jun 13, 2021

Inmates at Oklahoma prisons begin receiving computer tablets elkgrove 27 mins ago Oklahoma Correctional Bureau (ODOC) prisoners began receiving tablets this week as part of a plan to provide secure tablet computers to prisoners in all states. More than 21,000 prisoners in more than 20 facilities will receive tablets and will have access to books, college lessons, music and even a means of communicating with their families. “The tablet represents an important update to the communications and technical services we provide to prisoners here in the Corrections Bureau,” ODOC spokesman Justin Wolfe told CNN. “This kind of technology shows how we interact with prisoners and give them access to educational and employment opportunities.” According to ODOC, the goal is to reduce the chances of prisoners being imprisoned again after release. This program is a partnership between ODOC and Securus Technologies, which provides technical services to correctional facilities. Securus is one of several companies contracted by ODOC to provide inmate telephone services because Oklahoma has a bidding process to ensure that the provision of these services is objective. is. Under the agreement, Securus will provide prisoners with other services, including tablets. Tablet coming It features over 500,000 free books, access to legitimate books and documents, self-help resources, and a telephone platform that prisoners can use to talk to their families. Joanna Acocella, CEO of Aventiv Technologies, the parent company of Securus Technologies, said: , Told CNN. “Education has proven to be one of the most fundamental differences between those who re-offend and return,” she said. “Last year’s pandemic found that we all needed the opportunity to stay connected to what’s important.” Many services have a charge. For example, sending a digital message, such as an email, costs prisoners 25 cents per message. Also, according to Securus, video chat is limited to inbound chat and costs 75 cents per message. “Securus will install the technology to provide the platform and charge for some of the premium content (movies, TV, music downloads, etc.) and communication charges,” a Securus spokeswoman told CNN. The tablet is already in the hands of 2,500 prisoners at Sayre’s North Fork Orthodontic Center.And the program expands to include prisoners in all states By October 2021. Many features, including telephone and messaging services, evolve slowly throughout the year as prisoners become accustomed to tablets. “It’s pretty neat, I’ve never seen it. I’ve been 16 years old,” said Byron Robinson, a prisoner at the North Fork Orthodontic Center. video Posted by ODOC. “It’s endless. It’s really daunting how much this can be done.” The tablet connects to a secure private network. This will prevent prisoners from accessing the Internet, but will allow them to exchange e-mails and other electronic messages. With 32GB of storage, 13 hours of battery life, and a 1280 x 800 screen, the latest models of tablets flag and warn staff about improper use. Catalyst of change Michael Baldwin, a former prisoner at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility in Corcoran, California, is one of more than 300,000 imprisoned individuals across the United States using Securus tablets. For Baldwin, who had been imprisoned for 26 years, he said he “defined” the tablet the moment he decided to change his life. “The tablet reconnected me to all the kids I grew up in and all the kids I lost contact with,” Baldwin told CNN. “I was able to write to them, but it was difficult to hear their response. At first, they no longer love me, they don’t want me anymore, I no longer I thought I didn’t respect them, but I just lost access to them when I learned that they had improved their skills. “ As the world of technology outside his cell continued to evolve, Baldwin says he went beyond the traditional letters his children were accustomed to receiving by prisoners. Baldwin immediately began sending messages to his children when he picked up the tablet. “My son sent me a text message and started sending emails. It was like,” Oh, what a hell. ” It really gave me life, “he said. “They were able to send me videos, and I watched them over and over again. I started doing everything myself to be free again.” Baldwin has begun to regain connections with the outside world, along with new connections with his family. He listened to new music, read books one after another, and participated in educational programs. The tablet will be given to everyone imprisoned in the ODOC facility, but can be taken away due to violations, behavioral problems, or improper use of the tablet. According to Baldwin, tablets motivated prisoners to avoid violence and risk confiscation of tablets. “I usually felt despised and immediately saw someone who fought and left the situation because they didn’t want to be disconnected from the tablet,” he said. “The tablet was a family relationship, freedom and improvement.” After being released in 2018, Baldwin reunited with his family. He started his own business in Northern California. He attributed much of his success to the little tablet he received many years ago. “This tablet is one of the proofs of whether we are serious about rehabilitating prisoners in the country or if it’s a fake,” Baldwin said. “If we really want to rehabilitate the inmate population, we put these pills in the hands of everyone in prison.” Inmates at Oklahoma prisons begin receiving computer tablets Source link Inmates at Oklahoma prisons begin receiving computer tablets elkgrove 27 mins ago 22 mins ago May 1, 2021
