"We started working on this technology a few years ago" cites TurnKey CEO Todd Westby. "Last year, we went to China and had lots of trouble communicating back to the USA with the exception of using the video visitation software we had developed. That motivated us to put it in production and give our client facilities access to it. And we are more than pleased with what it has done for our clients and the inmates family and friends" Westby added.
TurnKey is based in Hudson, Wisconsin, a suburban town just across the border from St. Paul, Minnesota. KSTP-TV, the ABC affiliate in the Twin Cities, highlighted this new feature in a piece aired on March 9. To view this segment, click on this link: http://kstp.com/
"Reducing repeat inmates is one of our goals" cited TurnKey President Patrick McMullan. "We were motivated by a speech by one of our clients in Lincoln County Oregon, Sgt. Tom Graham". He stressed the mission of Sheriff Dotson in Lincoln County to reduce the number of repeat offenders. "If we provide them the avenues to stay in better communication with friends and family, we may drop our repeat offender population 10%, maybe more, and that means 40, 50 or even more, inmates who return to society as productive citizens. Our community and these citizens are better for it."
And the mission in Lincoln County mirrored what was outlined in an article written by This Week Live, a Twin Cities based publication (click on this link to see the full article: http://www.thisweeklive.com/
