Renovo Software's inmate video visitation system at the Tarrant County Jail in Texas was featured in the Star Telegram's photo gallery tour. Tarrant County's new Lon Evans Corrections Center is a five-story, 207,000 square foot, 444-bed, maximum security jail. The visitation area includes a children's waiting room, several video visitation stations for visitors, and inmate stations are brought into the inmates cell.
Placing the inmate video visitation stations directly in inmate housing units and the visitor station in the lobby means officers will no longer need to escort inmates and visitors. This strategic placement has the potential to all but eliminate the contraband introduced by visitors into the facility.
Edit: Star Telegram has since removed the gallery.
