Face2face offers the Department of Correctional Services a remote form of visitation that extends to both rural and urban communities. Face2face was conceived with the awareness of the many challenges facing both the Department and visitors to the incarcerated during traditional visits to Correctional Centres.
The greatest challenge facing Correctional Centres is undoubtedly the surge of contraband into the prison system during the traditional visitation process. Items regarded as contraband in facilities includes illegal items, like drugs and weapons, or items that are routinely forbidden in the area that is being monitored, such as mobile phones. In spite of intense searches including hand-held and walk-through metal detectors that are in abundance en route to the incarcerated, illegal items still penetrate the system via the traditional visitation process. Drugs and weapons pose a particular danger in a prison environment where there is a high potential for violence, drug abuse and the commission of further crimes often exacerbated by overcrowding, gangster-ism and boredom. Prison staff has to remain vigilant in the detection and confiscation of contraband to prevent chaos unfolding within the various Centres. The incarcerated use mobile phones to help smuggle in drugs and weapons, organise attempts to escape, or order crimes to be committed inside or outside Correctional Centres.
Traditional visitation for family and friends to a Correctional Centre generally starts with a day's annual leave from the workplace an early morning time-consuming trip followed by a multitude of prison rules and procedures for the visitor and at times could even be followed by a painful rejection at the end of a taxing trek to the prison. This form of visitation has always been the only option for visitors to Correctional Centres but a far more progressive and fool proof form of visitation is being offered to make visitation a safer more pleasurable experience for prison officials, inmates and family and friends wishing to visit the incarcerated. Face2Face bolsters a solid course certain to safeguard both the young and the elderly against direct exposure to a harsh prison environment on the one hand and a clever way for the Department of Correctional Services to reduce the penetration if not entirely block the flow of contraband into Correctional centres. Face2Face says no to illegal drugs and weapons penetrating the walls of Correctional Centres. Face2Face stands for total rehabilitation of the incarcerated in a drug free safe environment. Face2Face ensures safe relaxed communication with the incarcerated from anywhere, the comfort of your office, home or public space with the elderly, children and community, at your convenience.
Often families find it difficult to visit the incarcerate regularly as many live a distance from the prison while others are only free to visit on a weekend due to the long arduous processes involved in traditional visitation. Visitors find it demeaning to endure body searches and many are reluctant to expose children to the process of traditional visitation. It is through the process of Face2Face that offenders can regain their dignity and visitors can share their daily lives with the incarcerated. No more is there a need to tell a loved one not to bring a child to a prison. Face2Face will result in a morale boost for the incarcerated through the restoration of broken relationships with family and community members who would otherwise never have made the trip to a correctional facility.
