Los Angeles, CA – August 14, 2009 Public Communications Services, Inc. (PCS) the industry leader in providing inmate telephone services to the correctional industry is pleased to join the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office in announcing the Grand Opening of the Manatee County, Florida Sheriff’s Office Off-Site Video Visitation Center. The Grand Opening will take place August 21, 2009 at 10:00 am at the following location:

PCS is the sole provider of inmate phone service at the Manatee County Detention Center, providing inmates and their friends and families with multiple, affordable calling services and payment options. PCS’s commitment to ensure that inmates are able to stay in touch with their loved ones while incarcerated goes beyond just the phone system, however.
In Manatee County, Florida, PCS partnered with Renovo Software to provide a video visitation solution that includes an off-site center for family and friends. This off-site visitation center allows friends and family members to have face-to-face contact with their loved ones, without entering the secure area of the facility. The off-site center also provides increased efficiencies for the jail, as the Renovo system handles all visitation scheduling, thereby reducing administrative time required by the jail, and also eliminates the threat of contraband being brought into the facility, which is an issue associated with standard visitation.
PCS is pleased to be able to help make this new off-site visitation center possible, and remains committed to providing best-in-class services to correctional facilities through their state-of-the-art telephone system, as well as through relationships with valuable partners such as Renovo Software.
