Video Visitation

In this photo taken on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, a visitor uses the video visitation system at the Fort Bend County Jail to speak with an inmate, in Richmond, Texas. Prisoners’ rights advocates are worried that the growing use in the U.S. of video technology to facilitate visits between inmates and their family and friends at county jails and prisons is part of a trend to eliminate the more traditional in-person visit. But officials who run these facilities say video visitation has been a boon to their efforts to improve security and increase visiting hours. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip)
