Tracking inmate call use
« on: October 04, 2018, 07:41:59 PM »
Talked to my husband a few minutes ago. He said Dixon has a new system for inmate calls. Basically they are only allowed to make one 30 minute call then gotta wait another 30 minutes if they wish to place another call. That means no more back to back calls from inmates. Allowing all in line to get 1 phone call in.

yes that is good.  Stops one guy from getting up early and signing up all the phone slots.

I would think the Securus phone software keeps track of that automatically, at least I hope so.
