TurnKey Corrections and Edovo join forces with a unified tablet-based approach to inmate services
Companies join to create a unified approach to making lives better.
By: TurnKey Corrections
TurnKey Corrections will be introducing Edovo's services to their partnered jails through a tablet solution creating increased points of access for inmates at those facilities to utilize both the educational platform as well as communication opportunities through TKC. "This strategic partnership will take both our companies to the next level. By partnering Edovo services with our technology, we can help reduce any barriers to entry for many facilities, thereby allowing them to use Edovo's potentially life-changing educational services," said Dewey Wahlin, President of TurnKey Corrections. "One of the main objectives of our family of products is to improve the experience for jail staff and adding a program like Edovo's truly aligns with our mission," said Wahlin.
"Edovo is excited for the opportunity to further expand our national footprint and deliver our best in class educational, vocational, and rehabilitative content to an even larger portion of the incarcerated population. This partnership will provide thousands of individuals with access to re-entry services and substantive programming, further continuing our mission of helping everyone connected to incarceration build better lives," said Adam Pennington, VP of Business Development for Edovo.
Studies show that regular access to communication with supportive relationships outside of the facility leads to better outcomes upon release for inmates. Additionally, according to the Departments of Justice and Education, access to correctional education programs can reduce recidivism by 43%. Edovo's programming boasts an impressive 75% usage rate. High usage can mean behavior management thereby creating a safer environment for inmates and jail staff alike. "We believe that with this partnership we can help to create better, safer environments in the facilities that we service. A better experience and environment for inmates and jail staff" said Todd Westby, CEO of TurnKey Corrections.
