Finney County To Offer Online Visitaion With Inmates

KSCB News - January 25, 2012 12:27 pm

Families and friends who want to visit loved ones in the Finney County jail just have to log on to their computers.

The jail in Garden City is using a new system that allows people to contact jail inmates from anywhere with a suitable computer and Internet connection.

The new program means inmates can be visited from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. However, unlike the old system, the visits cost money. The cost of a general visit is 50 cents a minute or $20 for a 20-minute visit, which is the maximum time allowed.

Previously, inmate visits were possible only over a video system in the jail lobby and only from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Friday.
