Keefe Group Launches New Technology Division, Access Corrections™
|By Keefe Group|
Due to the overwhelming success of Keefe Group’s technology services, a new division called Access Corrections™ has been created to host all technology service offerings. Access Corrections™ will continue to focus exclusively on corrections by developing new technologies and services that increase the efficiencies and security throughout the industry.
Access Corrections™ encompasses a number of technology services including, Access to Entertainment™, Secure Deposits™, Secure Mail™, and Secure Release™.
Access to Entertainment™ provides a digital music program which eliminates the efforts of correctional facilities in manually selling cassettes and CD’s that are increasingly becoming unavailable. The program allows inmates to purchase songs individually through an MP3 Player which is designed and manufactured specifically for the security aspects of a correctional environment. There is no cost to the facility to implement and the benefits include a reduction of staff time and effort and an increased service and value to the inmates.
Secure Deposits™ enables friends and family members to deposit funds into an inmate’s account through the convenience of a toll free number, website or cashiering kiosk, drastically reducing the amount of incoming mail and deposits to the facility.
Secure Mail™ is a secured inmate email program that allows an inmate to receive emails on a dedicated and secure site. Emails are automatically filtered by secure software to identify any key word or phrase as determined by the facility and saved for future recall or investigation.
Secure Release™, a debit card release program, allows facilities to stop issuing checks and cash upon release and provides inmate balances on prepaid debit cards which allow for cash withdrawals at any ATM or bank, as well as point-of-sale transaction purchases.
For additional information on any of these technology services or future services, please contact 1.800.864.5986.
