What Is Your Correction Facility Phone Company?

Many inmates wonder about the correction facility phone company but it doesn't really matter. If you are in prison you do not have any say in the correction facility phone company that you use. Each facility will decide for itself what correction facility phone company to choose and use. This correction facility phone company will have a contract with the facility, which will allow for inmates to make their calls when they want to.

The correction facility phone company itself gets much out of this working relationship because they charge a lot for the inmates to use their services. It is not the inmate or even the prison really that end up paying this high bill to the correction facility phone company. It is actually the people who are being called by the inmates that get the bill from the correction facility phone company.

Collect calls are all that inmates are allowed to make. There are many reasons for this and that is why correction facility phone company and prisons have contracts. Inmates are only allowed to make collect calls through the correction facility phone company because this assures that every call they make is to someone that actually want to talk to them. If those he or she is calling does not want to then this person need not accept the call. This keeps the inmates from harassing anyone or threatening anyone. If they paid for their own calls instead of going through the correction facility phone company they could call witnesses or the witnesses lawyers or family and do all kinds of damage to the prosecutions case.

A correction facility phone company makes oodles of money off of these contracts. No only are their rates much higher than normal collect calls the correction facility phone company also charges a pricey surcharge to all of these calls. Add to that the fact that the prisons only allow the inmates to talk for a certain amount of time per call and you are talking about serious money even from just one inmate per day. They are usually allowed to make more than one call each day they just have to be a certain duration. The correction facility phone company is raking money in hand over fist with this arrangement.
